Startup Error

I typed gedit /etc/host cause I'm trying to solve this error

quote: Could not lookup internet add. for host3-null. this prevents gnome form operating correctly it may be possible to correct the problem by adding host3null to file

Now I'm screen that says

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost

And a guy says this ....

quote:1. su
<enter root password>
2. kwrite /etc/hosts
<edit file, save it, exit out of kwrite>
3. kwrite /etc/sysconfig/network
<edit file, save it, exit out of kwrite>

since changing these files requires a reboot, you can use this command so you don't have to reboot.

4. hostname your_name_choice_for_your_computer

But I don't know what to put to edit the file I don't want to mess up my internet connection so pleas help me. And tell me what to put to fix that above error

I'm using gedit cause I don't have KDE installed

Please, don't double post.

Changing the subject doesn't make it any better, though ...
