If the NIC card is now visible you should be able to create/edit the
hostname.??? file (where ??? represents the device associated with the NIC) and
enter the name you wish to use. Then, make an entry in the /etc/hosts file with
the IP address and hostname combination. You could then reboot for the changes
to take effect. Or, you could type:
ifconfig <device> inet <IP address> netmask <netmask address> broadcast
Other files you might want to look at are /etc/defaultrouter, /etc/netmasks,
/etc/resolv.conf, and /etc/nsswitch.conf. Man pages should be available on all
of these. Hope I haven't missed anything and I'm sure everyone out there will
correct me if I'm wrong.
