Well, that's in there somewhere, I just haven't found it yet. According
to the files in /var/run/wicked, my hostname is staticXXX-XXX-XXX-XXX

Try pinging another computer on your LAN, using only the host name. 
Without the domain listed in resolv.conf, it won't work.

Well, that will be difficult, without a LAN to ping. Sorry for not
making that clear.
Though all this has made me wonder, what would happen if I slap another
network into this machine, fake a LAN, and try to define a domain name
for the internal zone? If I had another monitor and keyboard, I'd also
be tempted to fire up the old machine, and see if I could replicate what
Carlos is trying to achieve.
