I attached the network cable, and then did a new install, using an ftp
mirror to update everything during the install.

Now, I get this:
[bret@ganesha etc]$ ls -l h*
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root           26 Sep 26  1995 host.conf
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            8 Dec 19 14:56 hostname
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          277 Dec 19 15:02 hosts
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          659 Dec 19 22:05 hosts.allow
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          659 Dec 19 22:05 hosts.allow.bak
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          948 Dec 19 22:05 hosts.deny

[bret@ganesha etc]$ cat hostname

So, perhaps it was an install bug in r0.  Unfortunate.  I like to be
able to restore the system when I don't have a network connection (it's
a laptop).  But then, that's what r1 is for - to correct bugs in r0.

So, now I've a reason to get a CD burner.

I've only had a quick look at the rest of the Debian install - I can
already see some problems, but I'll write them as separate messages.
