Hi ! I have a weird problem. When I open a terminal under X, configuration files (under profile.d for instance or the csh.cshrc files) are not read. The user is not listed when I type "w" or "who" and it is not in the list of connected users ("last | more"). My machine is a standalone machine at home. No connection to the internet, no modem. This happens right after the installation (text mode or anaconda). Moreover I have the feeling that X cannot find the name of my machine. Emacs still calls mu machine localhost.localdomain and screensaver cannot connect to :0.0 or something like that.

please remember that most terminals are not started as login shells, but merely as interactive shells. You need to create the settings you want for each of these terminals in the proper file, i.e. .bashrc for bash. Edit /etc/hosts to change the name of your machine, or use linuxconf, or use netcfg.
