Apache domain and hostname

I'm having some problems getting apache to run. I installed it with my mandrake 10 installation, not by hand from source. I didn't really do anything to the config files, as far as I could tell they were fine (with my limited knowledge) When i try apachectl start it tells me it couldn't determine the server's fully qualified domain name using

What domainname and hostname do I need to set? I would just like to be able to access my computer by typing the IP in the URL field. Later on I will forward a domain to that IP.

I just need to know what the domainname and hostname need to be. (I have no idea what these should be set at)
