CHANGING HOSTNAME IN DAMN SMALL LINUX HD INSTALL



Open ( as root ) the file /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig and find the line:

QUOTE
hostname box

. . change the word "box" to the hostname you desire.

Next open the /etc/hosts file and change the word "box" in the line:

QUOTE
127.0.0.1      box localhost


Also open the /etc/hostname and change "box"


Then reboot and be happy . . .
