This is not a problem but a compaint that I hope a fedora developer reads about.
After installing Fedora Core 1 and playing around with it I found out that I needed to change the computer's name in order to set it up as a host on my windows network. I used the Network tool under System Settings and then upon reboot I had some serious boot up problems (for this newbie anyway).
I was able to fix this by adding an entry in the /etc/hosts file and now everything works great.
My compalint is this: Why didn't the Network tool take care of adding an entry in /etc/hosts for me? If there is a technical reason then at least I could have been given a clue that I needed to do this or else bad things would happen. I had this problem back with Redhat Linux 8.0 and was a bit surprised to encounter it again.
