The 3Com 3c905x series uses "elxl," so the correct hostname file would be hostname.elxl0 (or elxl1, 2, etc.. depending on the interface).

Does that answer your question?

I think I remember it being hostname.elx0, and the sys-config process should have already created it. If you are trying to configure networking by editing files, you should be using sys-unconfig to revert the system and let it gather the networking info at the next boot.
