So you're saying that in order to start you had to set the line in
/etc/hosts to this:
127.0.0.1 localhost tlewis
I think the point is that the last item shouldn't be the fully qualified
domain name so in your case it should look (something) like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost jjlinux

Old Tom was the single cracked bronze bell in the University bell tower.
The clapper dropped out shortly after it was cast, but the bell still
tolled out some tremendously sonorous silences every hour.
