netconfig not going beyond domain screen

Recent Slack convert - trying to get netconfig running. When I type 'netconfig' from Konsole (as root) I get the screen that asks me for my host, I enter "localhost", it then goes to the domain screen, I enter "localdomain" and then it exits netconfig and goes back to the Konsole screen. Did I perhaps d/l a bad package? If so, which one and where can I get it?

localhost will be created automatically for you, instead put in something like (or whatever)


and then

and it should proceed.

Don't know if that's specifically the problem as I haven't even bothered with netconfig, but he who dares...

thanks for the quick response, however, that didn't work. Still same result...goes back to the Konsole after I enter the "domain name"
