I don't think anyone can tell you exactly what needs to go into those
files, because the contents are completely dependent on your local
network setup.  How can anyone tell you what to put in /etc/HOSTNAME??

In any case, for determining basic network functionality, it does not
matter what is in /etc/HOSTNAME, /etc/hosts, or /etc/resolv.conf.

You have two options for how to enter your basic network settings
(your IP address, netmask, etc).  You can (1) use linuxconf/netconf to
do it, if you use the network.opts file given in the HOWTO, or (2) you
can enter the settings directly into the network.opts file.  You need
to choose one way or the other.

Whichever you choose, you can use the "ifconfig" command to verify
that the network is configured the way you think it should be.  Also
pay attention to your system log in case the driver is generating
error messages.
