Override Host name assigned by DHCP?
Authored by: Schwie on Mar 16, '06 10:15:40PM

This is advice from Trevor in the Forums and the only thing that ended up getting things to work for me:

Open "Terminal.app" and at the prompt enter:

cd /etc
sudo pico hostconfig

Enter your password and modify the line that says:

HOSTNAME=-AUTOMATIC-

to:

HOSTNAME=mnm_bschwie (or whatever you want)

Press Control and X to get out and save you changes.

You may need to do a restart to make these changes go in to effect.
