1) To change the prompt type export PS1="[Whatever you want your prompt to be]"
2) Google search returned the following:
Edit the name in /etc/hosts
Edit /etc/sysconfig/network. It'll contain something like this:
Edit /etc/hostname. e.g. echo "yourserver.com" > /etc/hostname
Reboot your server, or just run: "hostname --file /etc/hostname" i.e. set the host name based on the name in the /etc/hostname file.
Applications that were running before you changed the hostname will probably not reflect the new host name until after an application (or server) restart.
