As root, you can run the "hostname" command to set your hostname.

hostname client.domain.com

replied to this type of question long ago...
well the command hostname is not enough...

1.change the name using command hostname
2.edit file /etc/hosts and enter a new line similar to the existing one except required name at the end of the line.
3.you have to edit file /etc/sysconfig/network also if you are using Redhat...
