A minor update for anyone still watching ;)

That worked fairly painlessly on the Debian client... but F12 is still a 
thorn in my side.

For now thats what I'm having to do.  Apparently everyone on Fedora is 
busy using Network Manager (gui tool that invades/usurps the traditional 
networking config files), and no one knows where the dang config file 
went to.  In Ubuntu 9.10 Network Manager worked fine (there is a spot to 
enter the host name when requesting a dhcp lease), but in F12 its not. 
But nobody wants to hear *that*...
