I read somewhere about the dreaded sendmail hand when you set your hostname. What is the exact procedure to set your hostname on redhat 5.1 2.0.35 so as not to get the hang, as I had the hang when I set my hostname and had to change it back to localhost to stop the hang....

Use the Network control panel icon to set up your hostname, domain, IP etc. I've never had any problems changing things using this.

Procedure depends on which X window manager you're running. It's either on a menu, or you can start the control-panel from an Xterm.
