I had thought so to until someone told me that
dhcp didn't provide hostnames.

Here it is:
lease {
  interface "eth0";
  fixed-address 24.117.45.226;
  option subnet-mask 255.255.252.0;
  option time-offset 0;
  option routers 24.117.44.1;
  option dhcp-lease-time 1209600;
  option dhcp-message-type 5;
  option domain-name-servers 24.116.209.232,24.116.0.202,24.116.212.232;
  option dhcp-server-identifier 24.117.44.1;
  option broadcast-address 255.255.255.255;
  option host-name "stmike";
  renew 5 2005/4/22 01:09:45;
  rebind 4 2005/4/28 11:02:46;
  expire 6 2005/4/30 05:02:46;
}

Is this telling me that the client told the server that
the client's name is stmike, that the server told the
client that the client's name is stmike, or something else?
