Are you talking about a DNS client on the machine ... or are you trying to make this machine be a DNS server to control a zone? Normally, you would set your individual computer name in the file /etc/host.

If you are trying to setup this machine up as a DNS server, I have a guide here. For RHEL 3 AS you can't use yum to install packages ... use up2date instead.
