Description of problem:
Neat needs a field to allow a DHCP hostname to be specified. This filed
should be put into the variable DHCP_HOSTNAME in /etc/sysconfig/network,
where it then gets used with the -h flag when dhcpcd is run. This field is
needed to get many cable modem setups to work which rely on dhcp and use
the host filed for authentication.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.try to set DHCP_HOSTNAME.
3.oh no, you can't!
as of 0.9.22, you should be able to set this
0.9.24 is available at http://people.redhat.com/teg/neat/ and soon in rawhide
