Description Dan Yocum 2000-04-07 18:39:52 EDT
On a fresh 6.2 install this is what my /etc/hosts line looks like: 	master1.mycompanyhere.com master1 localhost.localdomain

When it should look like:	localhost.localdomain	localhost	master1.mycompanyhere.com	master1

This is a bad, bad thing.  Trying to make any type of network connection
takes *forever* in the first case because the name
master1.mycompanyhere.com isn't in the DNS and can't be found in the
/etc/hosts file.


PS. Give Donnie a noogy for me.  ;)
