You can also pass it in from LILO at bootup, with:
... in "/etc/lilo.conf". In a transnames situation, the server can be
booted like that, so that the hostname will be known early in the
init.d/boot script. Right after "/proc" is mounted, transnames begins
to function. From that point on, the client/diskless/whatever
machines can boot with bootp, and get their hostnames from NIS+ or
DNS, as you say.
