My machine != localhost.localdomain?

Hello all,

I hope someone can answer this...

I had to swap out one of my machines this afternoon. Before I did that, I 
called it "localhost.localdomain", by default, in the
system-config-network interface, and fixed an IP so that I could access 
the Internet.

Well, when it came time to swap out the machine with one named, it now says in /var/log/messages that != localhost.localdomain. Did something not "take" 
when I renamed it? What files should I look in to find out? It's a warning 
message, but I want to get rid of that error message altogether.

As always, thanks for any help!
