    When I open up the terminal, I get the follwoing:
    What's with the "unknown7cd1c3907ade" that comes before my name? Isn't something like my computer's name supposed to be there instead?

    Thank you,
    Andrew

    Change it in the sharing preferences Pane and you should be OK again.

    The hostname was probably set by the DHCP server.
