anaconda picked up the hostname of the machine I was installing from DNS. I
changed the setting from 'manual' to 'obtain from DNS', and when I rebooted the
installed system, the hostname ended up as 'localhost.localdomain'.

What's in your /etc/hosts/ file and /etc/sysconfig/network ?

rats, /etc/sysconfig/network contained:
