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'.

Patch for firstboot that adds a host.py module
This is already prompted by anaconda during network setup; why does
firstboot need to ask a second time?
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.
