name that DHCP already knows about at that point (testdev2-002).

Host name is: SystemImager-autoinstall-system
Operating System Type is linux
Operating System Release is 2.6.7
Architecture = i686


These scripts work just fine on other distros ( RH-9.0, Suse-9.2)  but not 
on Gentoo.  Also, once the newly installed system is rebooted, the scripts 
do get the correct name, but this needs to work properly the first time.

How is this variable being set by cfagent?  Can (and should) I over-ride 
the $(host) value on the command line?  I cannot seem to find it in the
