Description Forrest 2004-04-12 19:13:13 EDT

Description of problem:
Add a page to firstboot to create a hostname for the machine.  This
will simplify the process of setting the hostname, and will cut down
on the machines that are 'localhost'.

Comment 2 Barry K. Nathan 2004-09-28 16:59:51 EDT
This is already prompted by anaconda during network setup; why does
firstboot need to ask a second time?
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-07-08 12:51:07 EDT
Anaconda asks you for a hostname when you install, and you can use
system-config-network to change the hostname once the system is up and running
by selecting it from the desktop->system settings->network menu.
