Please see man hostname
I hope this isn't homework (Please read the LQ rules:

On Fedora with Gnome as the default desktop go to menu System > Administration > Networking for the relevant GUI tool.

Welcome to LQ!
It isn't homework I just need to know how to do it. What do you mean by man hostname?

Open a terminal, type man hostname then press the return key.

The "Manual page" for the command hostname is displayed.
Pageup PageDown and Q to Quit. It is easy

Or put man hostname into a search engine if you prefer prettier formatting. Or search LQ for a nice little script called man2pdf which will convert man pages into pretty PDFs.

OK, I did it for you. Here's the link:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...77#post3360877

man man will tell you how to use the man command.

man is very useful.
