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.

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?
