Description

I couldn't find any way to make a good headline, but here's the request:
let the amahi install script inject $HOSTNAME instead of hardcoded "hda".
this should be fairly easy to setup (I am not a coder, but in my mind it seems simple), you're using a variable instead of a hardcoded value.

This resolves 2 issues:
- dns resolving conflict to http://hda in case of 2 or more hda's in the same subnet (e.g. 1 testing in VM, 1 production) since dns requires a unique value and throws a fit during setup if you try to have the same hostname.
- webbrowser is accessible to hostname; something which would feel more natural and logical to (new) users
