Ever had a ton of computers to manage and reformat and give name each time?
Well not anymore! well.. at least for linux admins!!! :D
Presenting genhostname-eth and genhostname-wlan
these 2 scripts runs at boot level(install just 1 of them!) and then automaticly changes the computers name to PC-{MACADDRESS}

the script has an execution time of 0.09 seconds so you will hardly notice it!
Downloads available from Sourceforge and launchpad!

This thing works great on my linux lab of 50 pcs
i made an image with clonezilla and then pushed it to the other 49 pcs.
noticed that nothing happened the first 2 boots, after that it works flawlessly

Everyone that is going to use this i recommend rebooting the pc you take image of 2 times before making the image so the script gets "activated"

anyway great little script :)
