    I'm currently trying to work my way trough the tutorial "The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server (Dapper Drake)". And I'm now at the 3rd page doing the /etc/hosts part.

    The tutorial sais that I should get (my version of on both "hostname" and "hostname -f" but when I do "hostname" I only get "atum". Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    And also, in the next step I'm supposed to use Putty to edit some other stuff. Are there any guides on how to use this program? And on hostname should I put in "", "" or somthing else as the hostname in Putty?

    ps: I'm a Linux-noob, so be gentle with me :)

    That's ok, nothing to worry about. :)

    Do you mean vi? Have a look here:

    echo > /etc/hostname
    /bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname

    good luck
