I just installed Samba (latest RPM for Mandrake 7.2) on my linux box.
It was working fine until I rebooted...
The problem is that when I start it, it says "Get_Hostbyname: Unknown host s098".
s098 is my hostname, but not the full. I get this name from a DHCP server. The full name is

How can I avoid Samba to use this name (and use a fixed one I could create) ???

thanx in advance

PS: I've looked at the archives but it takes to long, there is no search engines :/
