The dhcp package hasen't changed for a while so I'll assume you're running the latest. The only other thing I can think of is adding "request host-name;" to dhclient.conf, although IIRC, that's one of the values requested by default. You may want to check out the documentation at http://www.isc.org/products/DHCP/.
