Unhappy What is 'Vigor14'

As far as I can make out, it maybe the name my system goes by.
But when I installed RedHat 9, I made a note of all the steps, and I certainly didn't call it that!

I spent 11 hours yesterday searching just about everywhere! I googled, I read forums, but the only indication were that some people know, but won't tell.
Is this some sort of secret, or, am I too daft to realise the obvious.

What context do you see Vigor14 in? That name by itself doesn't ring any particular bells to me.

Try typing hostname on the command line.

This will return the name of the computer. It's been a while since I've installed Redhat 9 on a system, but its possible (although really odd) that it picked some default/random name.

Where is it that you see vigor14 written? Could it be a username? (The command whoami will tell you the current user name)
