I assume you're using a live CD. This is just the hostname of the build
daemon machine that built the live filesystem; it's left there because
it's as good as any other. If you install the live CD, then you'll find
that /etc/hostname has been populated with the hostname you supply
during the installer.

What are you doing when you encounter this error?
