Dear Flebool,

information such as the host name (reported by the virtual host shell 
prompt) are passed to the virtual host via kernel command line parameters.
For the specific case of the host name, virtual machines initialization 
scripts get this information by reading the "name=" parameter.

P.S. Thank you for reporting your successful experience with Netkit :)
