Hi,
from all distros I tried, Pradus is the only one to correctly broadcast its hostname into a local network. I can use nfs to access my Pardus machine simply from any computer in the network by pardusbox:/home and I do not need the IP. This is great!

However, I never managed to set the same thing up with any other distro, they do not seem to broadcast the hostname into the network, so other computers can only use the IP, which is problematic, because my router will change a machine's IP from time to time.

So my question is: How does Pardus do that??? Which programs are running to work this magic? I want to know, so I can replicate it with other distros on other computers.
