    Edit /etc/hostconfig with your favorite editor. Change the line

    HOSTNAME=-AUTOMATIC-

    to

    HOSTNAME="your favorite hostname"

    Be careful here. Scot Hacker wrote a couple of weblog entries on oreillynet about how this can interfere with Rendezvous. I believe his problem was that he reset his hostname, and all of a sudden printer sharing stopped working. Epson fobbed him off to Apple, and Apple fobbed him off to Epson, and no one offered to help him figure out what was wrong. Turns out, it was simply resetting his hostname (and breaking Rendezvous) that was the sole cause of problems.
