Description of problem:
When you select DHCP to configure you ehternet interface, the installer should
still allow you to specify a hostname.
Some newtorks assign an address based on the name the dhcp client provides, and
others (such as mine) set up a dynamic dns entery poiting to the name you define.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Are you seeing this with TUI or the GUI installer?
Please try with the latest limbo release.
The installer lets you supply a hostname to use with dhcp, but that hostname is
not passed to te dhcp server in the dhcp request.
That would be a problem with the initscripts most likely.
For something like this, the installer would need to write DHCP_HOSTNAME="that
hostname" in the ifcfg file.
