IIRC, the 127.0.0.1 should normally have only the "localhost" thing.

$ cat /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain   localhost
::1     localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

That's all I have in that file.

$ hostname
centos501.homegroannetworking

$ hostname --fqdn
centos501.homegroannetworking

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
# VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II]
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx  # I've masked out MAC address for this post
ONBOOT=yes
DHCP_HOSTNAME=CentOS501
TYPE=Ethernet
USERCTL=no
IPV6INIT=no
PEERDNS=yes

If you are not getting your address from a DHCP server, there are minor
differences.
