Jim
my host name at home used to be just localhost, I reset my router last night and now I have this long nonsense host name thats like a mac address, actually, I think it is a mac, but either way, how do I control that so I can make it something shorter if not cooler?

Look in to following files..

/etc/hosts
/etc/sysconfig/network

use command hostname
and you would be able to change the host name!!!!

Why would you MAC address come in place of your host name.. Are you sure its not an IPv6 addy?

ex: IPv6 loopback = 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1
