as I wrote in my mail, we have active diretory running with dns
included ....
(standard software: wins, dhcp, dns in the AD)

if I set my suse-box up for gathering IP addresse, it gets one, but the
MS dhcp server does not
get information about the client name.

I just can check a box in the network services that my suse-box gets the
pc-name of
a resolved name of a dhcp IP addresse which a client had in former

a windows client just enters the network and sends its name to the
dhcp/dns server.
its automatically inserted into dhcp and dns.

why is it not possible for linux acing the same way? :-(
