Are you using DHCP to get an IP address for the machine you 
are installing mysql323-server on ?

If so, you need some further DNS/DHCP configuration so the 
PC has a resolvable address, I use the client MAC address 
in the DHCP server configuration so this PC always gets 
the same IP address, and then can "hard code" a host 
entry in the PC's /etc/hosts or in the DNS server. 
Alternatly you could not use DHCP for this machines IP 
address, and give it an IP address in your subnet that is not 
part of your DHCP pool of available addresses and add static 
DNS and /etc/hosts entrys for this PC.
