	A text search on what? Hostname? I'll try to remember that trick 
next time.

	With that parenthesis, that looks like a command; so I tried it :

[btth Hbsk2 ~]$ gethostname
bash: gethostname: command not found
[btth Hbsk2 ~]$

	Hmmm .... I left "localdomain" on all mine, for fear of getting 
in trouble if I changed it. Maybe I should?

[btth Hbsk2 ~]$ hostname
Hbsk2.localdomain
[btth Hbsk2 ~]$
