Title: customize hostname at install time

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Alin M Elena (ealin)

IN the automatic configuration mode at install time you cannot specify
the hostname... -- which by the way is displayed in your kde menu and
of course in the konsole... I find this despicable on aesthetic
Now putting the joke aside I find it strange to give the user the
choice to decide what encryption method to use (as a brainless option)
but changing the name of the computer to be considered as advanced...
I know you can do it by choosing a manual configuration... but for a
normal user that may prove a little bit challenging to have to decide
on a lot of other things in order just to choose a lousy name for his

+ How to set hostname is one of the FAQs on IRC and other support
+ platforms. So I agree very much that it would be desirable to have this
+ easily done during installation - even when using auto configuration.
