Redhat Linux 2.2.1
1. Can I assign IP address "10.1.1.1" to my machine?
2. Can I change the default machine name?
"localhost" to "jacklinux", is this a nickname? How to do this?
I tried to change "/etc/HOSTNAME" and "/etc/hosts". But after the update,
(IP address from 127.0.0.1 to 10.1.1.1 and name changing), during the boot,
it takes unusual longer time to start the "Sendmail" service.
And when try to start "SMB" service, message is:
"Use ServerName to set it manually".
Wait for longer time again(10 minutes around), boot is OK. but the name is
still the old one.
And when I try to "ping 10.1.1.1". Failed.
Any help, please!!!
Thanks in advance!!
