Unhappy Computer Name


I am currently running Red Hat 9 and would like to know how I can locate the name of the computer. Is there a bash command? Do I find it through the gui somewhere? I do not remember naming the box during the installation, however, I have to believe that it has a name. Anyway, any info would be great.

Thanks

Edit your /etc/HOSTNAME file. Logout and log back in for it to take effect.
