Hello,
I am getting ready to install cPanel/WHM. How do I set up my host name beforehand so that WHM recognizes it?

Go on, have a guess
You should make sure it's a full qualified domain name with a subdomain for the hostname. That is, set it to somthing.yourdomain.com which you can do by using the hostname utility or when you build the server. You may also need to set it in /etc/sysconfig/network
