Description Gene Czarcinski 2003-04-05 15:23:15 UTC
Description of problem:

The installer network configuration "page" defaults to dhcp being used for both
ip and hostname.  However, if the hostname is specified manually, it is not
clear that both the individual host-name and the domain-name are expected.  That
is, "xxx.redhat.com" is expected, not "xxx".

Comment 1 Chris Ricker 2003-04-05 15:38:41 UTC
I agree that the help for this screen should clarify that "hostname" is fully
qualified

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-05-21 18:28:58 UTC
Fixed in cvs.
