Checkout these options for your dhclient.conf file,


The example at the end of dhclient.conf(5) shows how a laptop that 
roams to different networks is configured.  It uses an alias to keep a 
fixed-ip.  With the use of 'supersede' you may be able to keep the 
hostname of your machine what you want, while letting the DHCP server 
give you different ip addresses.  /etc/hosts could then contain the 
aliase's ip with your hostname.
