Default NForce networking, GNOME, and Fedora Core 1

When I install the nvnet driver (through source RPM, or through tar.gz) I get the following error when loading GNOME:

Could not look up internet address for x1-6-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff. This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly. It may be possible to correct the problem by adding x1-6-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff to the file /etc/hosts.

(replacing ff-ff-ff-ff-ff-ff with my actual MAC address of course)

I can access the internet, but in all other cases, Fedora reports my hostname as being my MAC address as well (ie: when I type "hostname", in my prompt.

/etc/hosts includes the line " localhost.localdomain localhost"

I get this error regardless of whether iptables is running...

how can I fix this annoying error (or at least get it to stop displaying)?
