Hostname on the slave nodes in Scyld

The slaves will be issued names (node0, node1, etc.) during the phase three
boot (i beleive).  Then, when you drag them to the configured nodes column,
the MAC address will change to the node name.  There is no need to configure
any additional naming scheme.

Hope this is helpful.


Are the slave nodes in the Scyld supposed have no hostnames? Only the
front end machine should have the hostname?
