sdf,

I think you have recently installed a new software or you have modified your host and hostname file. This files are important because other program rely on it. For example server programs such as Sendmail, your nwclient, which will active it for support to novell if you have on running, your apache httpd server.
To fix this problem try restoring you default configs in your /etc directory, and make sure that you don't touch again your /etc config files without backing up or making a failsafe copy of all your modified configs.
if this doesn't work try reinstalling Redhat.

regards,

jetx
