    rceng02:~# hostname
    rceng02
    rceng02:~# hostname -f
    rceng02.eng.lan
    rceng02:~# head -1 /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 rceng02.eng.lan localhost.localdomain localhost
    rceng02
    rceng02:~#

    I always thought that was how it worked. The first hostname in
    /etc/hosts on the line containing the short name was used as the FQDN.
    Maybe that is only a gnu hostname thing. I seem to recall solaris had a
    domainname file that was used to find the domain part of the FQDN
    instead.
