There was a question about hostname in FC, namely that the router did 
not show the name of the linux machine on the router DHCP table. In my 
setup (FC3, linksys router), I made the following change: Go to

   System Settings -> network

and then select your interface. I have wired and wireless. I picked the 
wireless and selected edit. I then changed the  DHCP hostname to my 
computer name and saved. I restarted the network and voila - The name 
was visible in the router DHCP table.

HTH,
