questions


hi. 1 more questions. its not a huge problem .. but when i boot up after the start screen of rehat 8 i get an error type message saying

x1-6-00-20-78-b0-**-**

saying that gnome can't properly work without it .. and that it can't find it or something along those lines and to add it to my etc/hosts file

ive added it like so

>>
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
x1-6-00-20-78-b0-**

did i edit it right ? should i do something else ?

thanks
