HI,

No just typing :

"echo softserver.localhost > /etc/hostname"
OR nano /etc/hostname and edit directly the file

and after :
type into terminal :
/etc/init.d/hostname.sh start
for changes take effect..

On an Ubuntu Desktop version or Server version it's the same...

Make an mail server if you never use linux before ? You will need a lot of courage !

If you follow how-to closely you wont have any problems. It's always easier than it looks like.

I used the same How-To and I wasnt too familiar with linux neither when stated to build mail/www server but i did it with just few problems. Most of them were typos in commands that I wasnt too familiar with.
