Description Stephen John Smoogen 2000-01-11 18:36:26 EST
486 DX2 66
16 megs of RAM
SCSI Adaptec 1540
  200 meg HD (ID 0)
  800 meg HD (ID 3)
  2x cdrom   (ID 6)
Etherlink III (irq 5)
MSBusmouse (irq 3)

During install set up network card and hostname (ulkesh.example.com). In
next screen set up machines host IP and network information.

host ip

None of this information shows up in /etc/hosts. Instead localhost localhost.localdomain ulkesh.example.com

which caused some problems for some scripts :).

We are working to determine the best thing to do with /etc/hosts.  Lots of
factors involved, so we will just have to wait and see what happens.  This issue
will definitely NOT be resolved for beta3.

This issue is resolved in the latest cut of the installer and will appear in the
next cut of the installer.
