You should add a line like this to your /etc/dhclient.conf:

send host-name "foo";

(where foo is your hostname.)

I think this should do it; if it doesn't, make sure that your parameter request 
list isn't asking for a host-name option.   If that's not it, then check 
/etc/dhclient-script (it might be in /sbin, actually).
