Glad it worked. Now just to be sure it survives on reboot; post:

$ cat /etc/hosts

and let us know if you can:

$ ping localhost
$ ping Jaunty

Note: the reason sudo wasn't working is that it needs to find a valid
localhost & hostname first. I ran into trouble with that doing some
upgrades from feisty, or gutsy, can't remember which.
