the correct file to edit is /setup/hosts
Most linux distribs have a hostname file......sorry about that
there is a /etc/hosts@ file but(and I may be wrong here) it's a symbolic
link to /setup/hosts
in this file there should currently be a line like this localhost

add a line with your internal IP# and your chioce of internal hostname
sorta' like this localhost me.mynet

the above is JUST an example

you can also add similiar lines pointing to any other "internal
machines" on your network, and this'll act as a makeshift internal DNS
Good luck
and sorry about my earlier incompetance*LoL*
