#netconfig
look @ your resolv.conf
It should look like this

search domain.net
nameserver
The_IP_of_your_dns_server
                                                   
and your host.conf file

order hosts, bind
multi on

When do you see that message while booting or after and where do you see it, is it repeated or only once????

In any way try typing the command

hostname

and add a line to the /etc/hosts file providing the IP number for that hostname.

See if that's it, I'm not sure though.

Good Luck,

Tarik
