Need more information for this bug report.  What is your hostname set to?
Comment 2 Thomas Könning 2007-03-02 02:46:21 EST
my hostname:

I'm afraid I still don't have enough information to go with.  Is there a set of
steps to recreate the problem you are having?  And by that, I mean all the way
from installation to problem.

Ok. as i remeber, i installed FC6 and after the installation the computer was
named noname. Then i started the graphical network-administration-tool and
changed the name to tkdesktop. On the prompt, i can see that the changes took
place, but in the router i still get the Computer shown as noname.
(The router is an AVM Fritz!Box 2070)

Can you run the following command to scan your /etc tree for noname:

find /etc -type f | xargs grep noname
Comment 6 Thomas Könning 2007-03-08 12:36:00 EST
This command gives no results!
Comment 7 David Cantrell 2007-03-08 12:51:46 EST
OK, if 'noname' is not in _any_ file in /etc, then it's coming from somewhere
else and it's not related to Fedora.  Perhaps your AVM Fritz!Box 2070 is
defaulting to noname for some reason.

Closing this as NOTABUG.
