I am a newbie to Linux. I am working on an embedded Linux product and I have a question about the Host name. The system I am building can have multiple devices on the same subnet. If all of the devices have the same Host Name, will this create a problem on the network? They will have unique IP address, generally using DHCP with a reservation, but my current plan is to build the OS from the same image which will result in the same host name for each device. These devices will sit primarily on a Windows network.

I am running Debian 3.2.x if that makes a difference.

Thanks for any input on this.
