Yes the ONLY problem is that a F7 that was working just fine all by itself found it can not locate cups. After 10 minutes it does find cups but then it can't find sendmail for around 5 minutes. Then it comes up very slow and when clear up into xwindows it still doesn't all work. When it got to a point I could operate the SELinux control panels I tried to turn SELinux off. To see what happens. Well just now looking at dmesg the dam SELinux is not turned off! So what is the best way to make sure this thing is turned off?

Karl -

What you are describing is almost surely a matter of your host not being
able to resolve its own name.  Nothing whatsoever to do with SELinux.

Post the contents of your /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf files.

I'm betting good money that localhost does not resolve.

[karl k5di ~]$ cat /etc/hosts

OK how much money were you going to send :-)

[karl k5di ~]$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
nameserver 216.234.192.92
nameserver 216.234.213.130
[karl k5di ~]$
[karl k5di ~]$

It all looks fine to me.
