Description of problem:
When doing a fresh install of FC4 the installer does not give a chance to choose a hostname for the computer, but chooses a default name "noname", but does not include it in /etc/hosts, so GNOME is giving everytime you log-in an error. For newbies this might be quite confusing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Fresh install FC4
2.log in to gnome
Actual Results: Warning about the hostname not being written to /etc/hosts
Expected Results: I should have been asked during the install for a hostname or noname should be placed in /etc/hosts
