Thank you Falko. I had tried that but to no avail, having the 2 lines hostname has stopped any type of repair. I even just booted into recovery mode to no avail. I am currently reinstalling the OS and will chalk this up to a learning experience for a beginner Linux user.

I did however rename the hostname because the steps in both the 6.10 and 6.06 version on the HowTo's do not produce the results as stated by issuing the commands:

hostname

hostname -f

as per instructions.

After editing the /etc/host file as instructed those commands did not give identical results so hence the reason I went into /etc/hostname file top begin with.

I also did not use the sudo passwd root but rather just executed the sudo -s as one members comments had suggested.

These HowTo's are the best.
