Right. So much for `domainname`. I suppose it might still be useful as a
last chance, but definitely not as a first chance.

the domainname command returns the NIS domain, which has little to
do with the DNS name. infact, it's often best to keep these two
different -- some systems break if they are the same.

i wouldn't even use it as a `last chance', personally.
