For some reason, Debian's DHCP client doesn't send its hostname when
asking for an IP address. That's why the DHCP server (which probably
also answers DNS queries for you) is not able to resolve the DHCP
client's hostname.

You have to edit /etc/dhclient.conf or /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf
(whichever you have), the setting should be right on the top.

When you put a gun to my head you aren't fooling anyone.
