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

Ok, but the only thing that might be a problem is that when using DHCP, you
don't know what
IP address you're going to be assigned. This is my problem - any idea on how
to work around this ? Anyone ?
