Assuming this bug is about redhat-config-network, so reassigning.

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2003-01-28 10:40:59 UTC
hostname has to be a valid hostname, which sendmail can resolve, if it is activated.
The message redhat-config-network provided, which hints you to file a bug here,
is the interesting one!
