comment How can I stop Mac OS X overriding my hostname when I receive a DHCP request on Snow Leopard?
This should make your hostname stick, unless your DHCP server is doing something really odd. I have my box called "shteef" in both Sharing (as you mentioned) and in the DHCP Client ID, and it works fine.
