I accidentally mispelled my host name [www.myhostname.com] when I installed the new mandrake 10 OS. So now when there is a redirect as a result of a mispelled URL it redirects to an incorrect hostname.

HOw can I correct the hostname in the settings anyone?

thanx,

haans

#hostname http://www.yourhostnamehere.com

this will change your hostname.
