	   2) The hostname and domainname are not set separately.  Installing

	   splitting the host.domain name in /etc/HOSTNAME into host in
	   /etc/HOSTNAME and domain in /etc/DOMAINNAME, and changing the
	   hostname line in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 to:
	Debian 0.92 is now using the hostname/domainname pair from util-linux
	1.5, and /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 now reads:
		/bin/hostname debra
		/bin/domainname debian.org
I prefer /etc/hostname and /etc/domainname files because it's nicer
to be able to edit a config file rather than an executable (rc).
Or prehaps more preferable is hostname.le0 where le0 is the ethernet
interface.  Anyway, I'm allergic to uppercase.

hostname `cat /etc/hostname.le0` or similar seems pretty standard
amongst unices.
