RIS, change machine name during pre-installation

Installing and configuring an OS on a machine using RIS can be done using several methods. The method I want to use does not happen to be the Microsoft way. I want to get done that the machine name can be specified right after the username and password. However, when I verify if the name is used I have specified before, I find that that name is not used. Instead the naming convention specified by the RIS server is applied. There is a way to overrule the naming convention set by the RIS server, but I lost the documentation how it is done. The naming for servers can differ from the naming for workstations, these settings have to be changed on the RIS server. How do I overrule the settings specified by the RIS server? The changes have to be done mainly on the .osc and the .sif files.
Who can assist here?

Using RIS, one need to edit some files.
As stated earlier, one need to add and change some settings in files to make that happen.
Microsoft offers only some very limited options.
Editing those files will make this happen, I only do not recall what exactly has to be added or edited.
