/etc/myname can be your FQDN (that's what i use), or it can be what
you add do your 'domain' (in /etc/resolv.conf) to get your FQDN.
you misunderstand what /etc/defaultdomain is for: it's your YP domain
name, if you're using YP.
A bad naming convention, perhaps, but unless i'm mistaken,
/etc/defaultdomain was picked because it mached sun's name scheme.
