Subject Re: default masters/slaves content question

Start-dfs.sh script will try to start the secondary namenode on the node listed in masters

Datanodes don't connect to the secondary namenode, and slaves file should contain the hostnames
where you want to start the datanode. It can be localhost.

In default installation hadoop masters and slaves files contain localhost.
Am I correct that masters file contains  list of SECONDARY namenodes?

If so, will localhost node try to start secondary namenode even if it already have one?
More over will datanodes try to contact itself in order to try to reach  secondary namenode
on localhost?

should I keep localhost in slaves in case I want to run datanode on same sever I start cluster
and run namemode?

This is my first hadoop experience,
Thanks in advance.
