Don't modify or remove the localhost entry as Linux depends on it. Notice
that your machine can't be accessed from another machine on your LAN as
"localhost" anyway, since "localhost" is supposed to refer to the "local
machine". Add another entry to /etc/hosts that specifies a name for your
machine, together with an address that other machines on your LAN can use to
communicate with it.
