Change computer name so that it shows correctly on server

This is configured with the ‘hostname’ option in /etc/sysconfig/network. Update that file and either reboot or run the ‘hostname <mynewhostname>’ command.  Your current shell will not change but the next time you create a new shell it will be visibile in your shell.  If you run the ‘hostname’ command the effect is immediate.
