redhat 9 is evidently renaming itself...
a strange habit of my laptop running redhat 9 is that whenever i'm at home (it doesn't do it at work for whatever reason) and running off my cable modem, the computer renames itself after my ip. (that is, whereas it should be root@localhost, it's root@216-164-etc.) it then complains when i startx that there is no gnome profile for user 216-164... and warns that gnome won't work right, though it always seems to work fine. nonetheless, it's kind of an annoyance. neither slackware nor debian do this, so i presume it's just a case of redhat being overly helpful and i could shut it off easily if i could just figure out which configuration file to edit. does this sound familiar to anyone? thanks in advance.
