Creating the /etc/sysconfig/network file

A new file /etc/sysconfig/network is created and the hostname is put in it by running:

echo "HOSTNAME=lfs" > /etc/sysconfig/network

"lfs" needs to be replaced by the name the computer is to be called. A user should not enter the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) here. That information will be put in the /etc/hosts file later.
