What goes in /etc/hosts?

Suppose my FQDN is a.b.c. I'd like to set hostname to a.b.c. What goes
in /etc/hosts? I believe that X won't work unless you have:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain a.b.c
But this won't work with nfs4. If hostname is set to a.b.c and the entry
a.b.c is in hosts under 127.0.0.1, then when I try to mount a server (a.b.c
is client) I get this:
>> mount: can't get address for a.b.c
I guess mount isn't figuring out there is an eth0 interface and using that
address. If I remove the entry from hosts, and set the hostname to just
'a', mount works.
