The Linux machines get an IP address just fine and they get on the network without any problems. The only problem is that they don't write any type of name in DHCP or DNS.

You can see where the Windows clients write their info (first four lines) and the fifth line is where a Linux clients gets its IP address but it has no name. How do I get the Linux client to assign send its host name to DHCP (also, what's the best place to set the host name...there seem to be a ton of places to do so)?
How are the F7 machines connecting? system-config-network/
system-control-network, NetworkManager or something else?
