DHCP hostname not set with a linux client


Hi all,
I am having some problems with DHCP hostname updates on my clients. Whenever my windows machines get a new IP, the DHCP server updates my DNS server with the new IP. All my windows machines can see each other, and the linux servers with a hostname and a static IP. However, whenever a linux client requests an IP from the DHCP server, it is sending the host name, but my servers and my windows machines cannot see them. When I view the leases on my DHCP server, I see the linux client hostname. The linux clients will be fedora 4 boxes. What am I missing?

Below are my configs.

/etc/resolv.conf

Code:
; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
search nine.homelinux.com
nameserver 192.168.0.1
/etc/dhclient.conf

Code:
send host-name "marge";
send dhcp-client-identifier 1:0:a0:24:ab:fb:9c;
#send dhcp-lease-time 3600;
#supersede domain-name "nine.homelinux.com";
#prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1;
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
        domain-name, domain-name-servers;
#require subnet-mask, domain-name-servers;
#timeout 60;
#retry 60;
#reboot 10;
#select-timeout 5;
#initial-interval 2;
#script "/etc/dhclient-script";
#media "-link0 -link1 -link2", "link0 link1";
#reject 192.33.137.209;

#alias {
#  interface "ep0";
#  fixed-address 192.5.5.213;
#  option subnet-mask 255.255.255.255;
#}
Any ideas?

Todd
