Actually, you want to move upstream to the configuration files that
determine the host name. I'm using:
[dave at spindle ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network
[dave at spindle ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
# Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller
This seems to work. NM reads these files in order to determine what to
send on a DHCP request.
