OK, so let's first make that localhost stuff.
What does "ifconfig -a" say? Can you ping that host's IP-Adress (e.g. From inside that host/another computer?

Perhaps your lo interface (loooopback) is not setup. It should say something
lo     inet addr: [...]
        UP [...]

if not try #ifconfig lo up
and then ping again.

However, if no success, just mail your "ifconfig -a" output.
