Subject: Being a DHCP client

Two issues in making my box a DHCP client:

- The DHCP howto at <> 
has the example for /etc/dhclient.conf that looks very different than the 
man page for dhclient.conf. Both seem to work. Should the howto be updated?

- Using either style, and requesting host-name in the reply, my system's 
hostname variable doesn't automatically get filled in. This is a bit of a 
pain, because 'sup' requires it (I'm not sure what else does). Is there an 
easy fix for /etc/dhclient-script to add this? Should that change be made
