Default Problem installing Ubuntu 7.04 Server

Hi All, I have installed Ubuntu 7.04 Server following "The Perfect Setup" instructions and I have a few errors. Can anyone provide me with some help.

1) Section "6 Configuring the Network" - I made all the changes and everything works except hostname -f - I get the response "hostname: Unknown host"
I think that this is also also making apache and Proftpd to fail to start
How can I get the hostname to work?


Thanks in advance for your help

Dick
