Thanks to all of you who are answering my dumb questions about my new 
CentOS instgallation. 

I modified /etc/hosts, as the hostname man page seemed to suggest, and 
rebooted. The hostname is still localhost. I want to change it to 
jjb-centos. I also want to change the domain name to abilitiessoft.com
