DHCP Hostname


When slackware asks me to put my ISPs DHCP what do I put? I have comcast.
This is while I'm trying to set my network.

If you don't have any specific instructions from Comcast otherwise, you can safely just leave it blank. Some DHCP setups require clients to provide a hostname, but none that I've ever dealt with do.
