file /etc/hostname  shows the correct name  brutus which is the name of my 
network server on my home network

file /etc/hosts  lists as follows:	localhost	brutus.advance-computing.com

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
# (added automatically by netbase upgrade)

::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

I don't see any problems here & it exactly matches my other server setups on 
other systems.

In apache2 that is an empty file and all of the configs are in apache.conf 
along with a couple of other files. Also nowhere does it have the ip address 
of the host server that I can locate anywhere in /etc/apache2/

Now the real interesting thing is that when you issue the command 'hostname' 
brutus is delivered
If you issue the command 'dnsdomainname  --fqdn'  then unknown host is 

So I currently am exonorating apache2 and figure something is slightly buggy 
with the new network install iso image that I used..& this is the one 
curently touted for sarge.
At any rate thanks Antonio and Simmel  for taking a shot at this as they did 
prompt me to look deeper than previous.
