Hi,

Can some one tell me how to change the name of my computer from localhost to a name I want to call it.

Thanks

If you don't want to have to reboot your Linux box to get the name changed, from the command line type: hostname <name>

But also make sure to change it in the startup files as gotisssues said or you would have to issue the hostname command on each reboot.
