What is "Welcome CPE00e018f793a3-CM014500003194"


Alright when I just installed Mandrake, and using the KDE desktop environment. When it starts up, it says "Welcome CPE00e018f793a3-CM014500003194"

What the hell is this? Where did it get these random numbers and letters, is there a way to change it, like, during the setup process of Mandrake, or is there a way to change it after?

In the Mandrake Control Center under the menu "Network & Internet" It says this is my hostname...wtf?

if "CPE00e018f793a3-CM014500003194" is your hostname
you can change it with :
$ hostname="computer1"
