From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
While doing a VNC based install I selected "Use BOOTP/DHCP" to assign an IP
address, but when to assigned IP is taken from an dynamic lease range the
hostname is not known.

When VNC starts it gives a short message like:
VNC server started on :1

So it is not know which IP the system actually has.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a VNC based install
2. Use DHCP to assign an IP from an dynamic lease range

Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed).  If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
