I noticed the the installer asks for a hostname only after it attempts to
get a DHCP lease. Some ISP (@Home is (in)famous for it in the Netherlands=
require a specific hostname in the DHCP request in order for a lease to b=

Suggestion: First ask for a hostname and then request a DHCP lease (using
the supplied hostname)

 netcfg (0.71) unstable; urgency=low
   * Joshua Kwan
     - Remove XSIisms in dhclient-script.
     - Evaluate argv[0] after calling basename on it so that we can strcmp it
       against "ptom". It somehow didn't happen in the internal dhclient-script
       context, but appeared during testing in the shell.
     - Add Thomas Hood to Uploaders.
     - Re-enable broadcast stuff in dhclient-script, fixing a Sparc (at least)
     - Remove kill_dhcp_client prototype from netcfg.h because it's now static.
     - Change newline + a space to just a newline to end some disable_dhcp
     - Warn if there's no default route available after getting a DHCP lease.
       (Closes: #253543)
     - Don't add 'auto' or hotplug mapping lines for 16-bit PCMCIA devices.
       (Closes: #248071, #239284)
     - Add a missing fclose in iface_is_hotpluggable.
   * Christian Perrier
     - netcfg-dhcp.templates
       Some rewrite for being clearer, possibly. Run debconf-updatepo
   * Thomas Hood
     - Change interfaces options that use underscore to hyphens. No loss
       of functionality. (Closes: #255185)
     - *.c:
       + Test for NULL pointers before using empty_str()
     - netcfg.c, netcfg-dhcp.c, netcfg-static.c
       + Handle the case where there are no interfaces.  Just ask for a
         hostname and write basic /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/hosts
         files.  (Closes: #243543)
     - netcfg-common.c:
       + netcfg_get_interface(): Don't exit if there are no interfaces.
         Instead just return with variables set to 0.
       + netcfg_write_common(): write basic /etc/network/interfaces and
         /etc/hosts files even if the ipaddress is 0.
     - static.c:
       + Add resolvconf support (Closes: #255187)
       + Add comments to /e/n/i about which packages implement which options
     - dhcp.c
       + Add comments to /e/n/i about which packages implement which options
       + Fix race to dhcp_exit_status after dhcp_running set to 0.
       + Count iterations in the polling loop instead of checking the time()
       + Use waitpid(dhcp_pid,,) instead of wait() to get child status
         since we don't want the status of, e.g., killall.sh
       + Eliminate use of dhcp_running and use (dhcp_pid>0) in its place
       + Eliminate some unnecessary calls to kill_dhcp_client()
       + Mark local variables with "static"
       + Eliminate use of quit_after_hostname by creating HOSTNAME_SANS_NETWORK
       + Use DHCP hostname as the default hostname if no hostname is set
         (Closes: #239591)
       + Write hostname provided to the DHCP client in order to get a lease
         on the "hostname" option line for the interface in /e/n/i
       + If the user backs up from netcfg/get_hostname, go to retry question
       + Wait at least two seconds for DHCP client to exit  (Closes: #255984)
       + Clean up code
         . Always use spaces for indentation
         . Improve comments
         . Reorder state machine states
         . Move some functions around
     - netcfg-dhcp.templates:
       + More updates
       + Run debconf-updatepo again
