comment How does traceroute resolve names?
When I queried the DNS server listed in the resolv.conf file with the dig utility, I found both entries. I guess traceroute preferred the fully qualified one.

comment How to request a hostname from a DHCP server on Ubuntu?
It appears the hostname is sent - at least I can find the unique value in packets identified by Wireshark as "DHCP Discover" and "DHCP Request" packets. I'm not sure what would be different for the win7 machine and the Ubuntu VM.

This does not seem to work and appears to contradict what's in the conf file by default (and other references that I found via google). lucidtips.com/2008/11/17/… Unfortunately, that does not seem to work either.
