Question login error re domain in etc/hosts


forgive my newbieness, but I can't seem to get rid of this error when I start up Fedora 4:

Could not look up internet address for localhost.localdomain.
This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly.
It may be possible to correct the problem by adding
localhost.localdomain to the file /etc/hosts.

I have added the above to etc/hosts as root, no joy. What's the trick?

does the line look like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
note those are tabs not spaces ....

no. I can make it look like that. Is that IP addr the one to use? or just an example?
