Domain name support

Having found that the SSH server problem I was having has been solved,
I'd like to address the root issue. I ended up turning off DNS to get
sshd to work, but that's not really what I want. So the question is,
what do I have to do to have my domain name extracted on my machine?
When I log in at the linux console, I have /etc/issue set up to echo the
domain name, and it comes back as (none). But in /etc/hosts, I have my
ip address aliased to my domain name (which is qualified at dyndns.org).
How do I set up the system so that it recognizes my domain name? Do I
have to run a DNS server (BIND)? On my host, FC3, the domain name is
recognized, but I don't know what services are run to extract it.
Anyway, any pointers on DNS would be appreciated. This is an area that
I know very little about.
