I unchecked the box for Change Hostname via DHCP, and everything
changed. The problem is that in order for one of my virtual box

When I re-check the "Change Hostname via DHCP" box, the command line
interface returns to regis3@Scotts-iPhone:~>

server might be using the name "Scotts-Iphone" and cant seem to find it

This naming conflict seems to be at the basis of my problems with the
virtual machine connecting to the internet.

Any ideas?
