Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I was facing the same problem. This happens if you change the hostname during the install process. I have set the hostname of my system to "fedora". The installer assumes that people will not change the default of "localhost.localdomain".
Thanks this fixed it for me. And for those who don't remember what you set your hostname to it shows up when you open a terminal. Example mine says jonathan@jonserver so after the @ is your host name. Can someone verify that this will always be the case?
Yes, this is what I did different in my work place and in my home.
At workplace I left the default localhost.localdomain and added my machine name at end of lines after the first boot. In my home I changed it at installation time and never go back to /etc/hosts again.
How do you figure out this ?
Most interesting than the fix itself is how you came to this...
Anyway, thank you !
i'm also insterested in how you figure this out as well...
