During Solaris 2.5.1 installation, you are prompted to enter the machine's name.  Should you include the domain name or not ?  (Ie including it then uname -n returns 'machine.domain.net'.  If not, then it returns 'machine')
What's the suggested method and why ?

Under Solaris you don't include the domain name. Don't ask me why, I suppose this is for historic reasons...
