How to configure ServerName for Apache 2.0 in Mandrake?

Hi guys, I am a Mandrake 10.0 newbie. Just switched from Windows world. Anywayz, I got one question here and I hope someone can shed some lights on it. Here goes:

How can you change/reconfigure server name for Apache 2.0 on Mandrake 10? I vim commonhttpd.conf but there is no ServerName entry there. I am wondering if that entry resides in some other file ...or mayb I need to create an entry somewhere? I know there is some other apache config files but I doublechecked them all.

Originally the web server keeps giving me "...local.localdomain..not accessible". I fixed that by turning off the UseCanonical name thing. I hope that's the right fix because it seems to be working

Thanks a lot.

Does your computer have a hostname. On my desktop I can enter 'http://matrix.jesnet'.
