how do you change the host name?
I'm using Mandrake 9.0 and I was wondering how to change the host name of the computer. I accidently named it incorrectly and now I need to change it. I only installed gnome as it is a file & print server and I wanted to keep the HDD free.

"hostname newname" in a console

if you want to change it permanently, it's in...
and you may need to change it in /etc/hosts too.

Thanks! typing it in the command prompt worked perfectly :)
