Red Hat Linux 9.0 Clean Install - The Whole Enchilada
Last updated: 5/21/03

HOST TABLES

Copied /etc/host to /home/shared

The file was made when the network was set-up and looks like this:

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain linux
192.168.123.2 local.duxcw.lan duxcw
192.168.123.1 linux.WORKGROUP.lan linux

I edited it (the one in /etc/shared) to look like this (which you can further edit and use directly):

127.0.0.1 localhost
192.168.123.2 local.duxcw.lan duxcw
192.168.123.1 linux.WORKGROUP.lan linux

... for name to IP resolution--so you can browse to local.duxcw.lan entering duxcw in the browser instead of http://192.168.123.2. This file should be copied with the same name (and no extension; e.g., .txt) to C:\windows\ on the Windows 9x/Me computers and C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\ on Windows NT, 2000, and XP computers.

The host tables have been installed.
