Question Problem with Changing Host name in RH9

For some reason, I can't change my machine host name back to localhost.
I tried doing so in etc/hosts, etc/sysconfig/network, I thought it might be in the config of the HTTP server, alas nothing helps. When I reboot it keeps referring to my name - 'liron'.
Can you help?

Change RedHat host name

For RedHat you will have to change in three files:

/etc/RNH/systemid -- change only if you want to setup a new account
