If you have highspeed access, chuck CD and try getting new v3.0r1 :)
It is out there.

Bob have nice suggestion about hostname.  I would do this to find all
reference to it:

 # grep -s -r `hostname` . |less

Then do edit all entries to new hostname. Then you reboot (Oh, yes you
con do without reboot but that takes skill.)
