yes! its another newbie questions
got the RH 9 installed not long ago, was quite excited to see what Linus could do, anyway, here comes the newbie question:
after i log in each time, i was shown the following message,
'Coulld not look up internet address for dhcp-896-782.
This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly.
It may be possible to correct the problem by adding dhcp-896-782 to the file /etc/hosts.'
what exactly does that mean? i looked the /etc/hosts, and had no idea how to add? can anyone help?
also, it seems to me that all the programs seem to work faster when i am connected to internet. for instance, when im connected to the net, i could open a new terminal in a sec or two, but when im not connected, it takes ages to open a new terminal. is this a common problem?
