I'm trying to set up a network share with SAMBA but I'm having trouble.  My first problem (I think) is that my linux box has no hostname.  When I look at my routers dhcp status, it shows the linux box's ip address but the hostname is blank.  How do I fix this?

Thanks,
TNC

P.S., I suck at linux (so far)

Nevermind.  I used DHCP_HOSTNAME to correct the problem.

I need to request this question to be added to PAQ and points refunded.
