    Re:Setting up eth0 from CLI

    Actually, the host name is set in /etc/sysconfig/network file rather than /etc/hosts. /etc/hosts is used for host name lookup locally.

    Here is my /etc/sysconfig/network file looks like.
    Code:
    NETWORKING=yes
    HOSTNAME='mysystem'
    GATEWAY=192.168.80.1
    If you change the hostname part of it and reload networking module, you should be on your way.

    Now see, if you were using SuSE you could have used Yast2 to do that! Yep, has a CLI mode.

    for quite some time, RedHat had a CLI based one. Run /sbin/setup and it has tools for reconfiguring X, sound, NIC, and timezone.
