I've created a test network --networkid="11111" and I was able to create the "greeter" contract as an excercise.

Now, I'm following this guide and I am trying to register a name, but with no luck: registrar.addr("myname") returns 0x.

Is it possible to register a name within the test network or am I doing something wrong?

A similar unanswered question is at the forums.

Here's some info on the Registrar in Mainnet and Testnet - What is the Global Registrar?.

You will have to compile and deploy the registrar code to your private test network. You will find the Solidity source code at ethereum/dapp-bin .

You will need to keep track of the addresses you have deployed the registrar contracts to so you can use them in subsequent sessions.
