Re: Newbie Hostname Change

Interesting. I have just tried it with base-config, and it appears to have
worked. But, just in case, is there anywhere else I need to change it? Thanks.

the hostname.

He typed Ask4 instead of ask4, which is a problem.

I assume I can change this with the hostname command, but I want to be sure
there arn't any additional steps beyond this.

The hostname command will only change it temporarily.  For a permanent
change, edit /etc/hostname.
