Something along the line of :
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain sigil.outland localhost sigil
In this case, my hostname is sigil.outland.
With RedHat/Fedora, beside an entry in /etc/hosts, you might want to
edit /etc/sysconfig/network and change the HOSTNAME value. This is
being setted by the installer; there is probably a GUI to change it but
I'll be damned if I knew where it is.
