Localhost and domain

Hello everyone,

I am planning to install a new mail server on my RH9 lenux box. Currently it has a Apache 2.0 installed on it and the computer name is LOCALHOST.

I will probably install Qmail from but now Qmail config asks me about a domain. Is this my registered internet domain or not. If now what is it and do I need to change my Lunux box from Localhost to a full domain?

Please help I am confused.
