Sorry in advance if this question has already been asked and answered... but why does my terminal window say:

<font face = "courier"> [thisaddressdoesnotexist:~] myusername% </font>

when I run the terminal... what address doesn't exist and how can I fix it. We have a PowerMac G4 and a iMac G4 both running 10.1.3 and both say the same in terminal... how do you get rid of that.

If someone could help me with this, I would be most thankful, email me if you like... I just want rid of that 'thisaddressdoesnotexist'

Regards

Sorry don't know the answer, but just wanted to state that you might get a quicker reply if you post this in one of the OS X forums. They're listed farther down on the forums page than this one.
