I did something close to that:

virt-win-reg $diskimage

guestfish --ro -a $diskimage -i cat /etc/sysconfig/network | grep
HOSTNAME= | cut -d\= -f2

Same results though.

I'm only running RHEL and Windows guests, so the above worked fine for me.

I just recently started following your blog, I should look over your
older posts.
