I've set the hostname in etc/hosts, etc/sysconfig/network, and ifcfg-eth0, but it doesn't seem to be registering with the rest of the network. I can't refer to the CentOS box by name from the other machines on the network (Windows XP boxes), and the machine's Hostname listing in my router's DHCP display is blank.
Any ideas what I've got wrong?
I'm not 100% certain it was setting up Samba that made it work. I had tinkered unsuccessfully with a couple of DNS server options, so it could be some side effect of that. But since I never actually got the DNS working, or even fully set up, I'm pretty sure.
I don't like the 'magic' factor in the solution, but I'm not savvy enough with Linux at this point to be more sure.
Thanks for the help and information all.
