Apparently supplying a hostname is the default.  From man dhclient.conf:
"By default, the DHCP server (sic?)
requests the subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
domain-name, domain-name-servers, host-name, nis-domain, nis-servers,
and ntp-servers options."

I note that ip-address is not in the list,
so perhaps I am missing something.

In any case, if FC3's DHCP comes with a dhclient.conf file, I
would like to know what is in it.
I suppose I could find out by reinstalling,
but I am sooooo tired of installing.
I'm not terribly competent, I've done a lot of installing.
