Change hostname

The standard host name of "test" really doesn't tell you much about the computer ACID is running on. To change the host name, you can run the system-config-network command at the shell prompt. Choose the "Edit DNS Configuration" selection using the arrow key and return. The Host name field can then be changed by using the arrow key to select the Hostname field, and then the field can be edited. Once it is as you like it, then use the arrow keys to select the OK button

then hit return, and select the Save&Quit button using the same selection method.

Once the program quits, reboot the system using the reboot command at the shell prompt and the new host name will take effect on reboot.
