Changing localhost@localdomain???

Ok guys I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but here goes...

I'm not on a network, only a single PC running Red Hat 9, and when I get to the logon screen it says Localhost@localdomain. I was wondering if I can change that without being on a network???

Thanks in advance
