Question I get this error when I login to my fedora 4

Hy guys, I get this error when I login to my fedora core 4,

" Could not loop up internet adress for Vigor31
This wil prevent GNOME from operating correctly
it may be possible to correct the problem by
addeng Vigor31 to the file /etc/hosts. "

What is the best solution to this errro ??
puting the Vigor31 to the /etc/hosts. ?? or somehting els ??

Its a GNOME thing. I am not sure what the host name has to do with the functionality of the DE.
