> at a command prompt, if i try 'hostname newName', the name changes but
> it reverts back to the old name at reboot.
> 
> i've even vi'd /etc/HOSTNAME and /proc/system/kernel/hostname. the
> change still only lasts until a reboot.
> 
> i've also tried 'hostname -f  /etc/HOSTNAME' again it only lasts until
> a reboot.
> 
> however, if i use the gui 'netcfg' the name change sticks.  i prefer
> not to do it this way.
