add computer name in the automatic configuration install

Feature state

Duplicate of #303859


It may be very useful if the user can change the name of the computer even if
is in Automatic configuration during the installation.
Reason why? All other major OS let you do that.
ubuntu and fedora do it too.
PS This issue was discussed here too
Unfortunately the person who closed it was not open to discussions.

at least set a "standard" hostname (as in debian, its debian), and not that linux-"whatever" stuff
I find it "useful", because if its set under that "random name", you have to change it "manually"...

would be fine finding the option during installation

Also, in GNOME, the login screen references the computer name right on top. So having something set by the user would be desirable, preferably at the same time as they are setting up the user account, ask "What is the computer's name?". Mac OS X, Vista, Windows 7, and every Linux OS I know of does that, no reason why we can't.

This is one of my few pet peeves with openSUSE and I'd love to see this changed for 11.2.
