SUSE DHCP Client

I have a SuSE 7.2 dhcp client. In the lease on the server it gets it's lease from, there is only a uid to identify the client, and not a hostname. The lease looks like:

lease 1.2.3.4 {
starts 1 2001/09/10 07:23:02;
ends 4 2001/10/25 07:23:02;
binding state active;
next binding state free;
hardware ethernet 00:99:22:77:55:66;
uid "\001\000\220'}P\344";

How do I get the client to give it's hostname?
It's only the SuSE7. clients that don't give hostnames.

Try adding '-h my-hostname' to the arguments to dhcpcd. I've never used SuSE so I can't tell you exactly where to look for the dhcp commands, but it may be in one of the scripts in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
