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.
