Problem with fedora after running knoppix


I ran knoppix for a minute just to see if Konqueror would load a site that Mozilla wouldnt (and it did load it)... after i was finished and shut down my computer and restarted fedora i get this strange message after i log in... it says "cannot find URL for knoppix.. this may cause gnome to run incorrectly" and i can choose t the options of "try again" or "log in anyway"... My computer seems to still be working fine but I think its very odd that its doing that

The exact words that it says are "Could not look up internet address for Knoppix.
This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly.
It may be possible to correct the problem by adding
Knoppix to the file /etc/hosts."

First of all, please do not chainpost.

Check your hostname - maybe somehow your hostname was changed
to "knoppix"? Try changing it back to whatever it was.
