I've only had to do this for Sun stuff before but usually the vendor client class names are defined by the vendor, have you checked their site ?
Quote from Sun doco:
The client class is determined by the vendor of the DHCP client. For DHCP clients that are not Solaris clients, refer to the vendor documentation for the DHCP client for the client class.
For Solaris clients, the Vendor client class can be obtained by typing uname -i on the client. To specify the Vendor client class, substitute periods for any commas in the string returned by the uname command. For example, if the string SUNW,Ultra5_10 is returned by the uname -i command, you should specify the Vendor client class as SUNW.Ultra5_10.
