how do I change my host name for good?

Hi All,

How do I change my host and domain name for good and have it stick through a reboot?

$hostname
"Microknoppix.netgear.com" is annoying.

Many thanks,
-T

Unknown operation set

:'(


Edit: figured it out. There is a dash between set and hostname

# hostnamectl set-hostname smr54isawesome.toddandmargo.com --static


Thank you!
