We're way off topic here, but here's a few quick pointers:
See dhclient.conf(5): consider something like:
supersede host-name "my.custom.hostname"
send host-name "my.custom.hostname";
It really depends on how that DHCP server is configured...

By default, FreeBSD used the ICS DHCP client. It's called 'dhclient',
it (and it's config file) have a manpage.
In my case, I disabled the DHCP server on my ADSL-modem/router/switch,
and instead chose to run my own server. The classic counterpart
to dhclient is 'dhcpd', which is available via the isc-dhcp3 port.
This let me side-step the questions surrounding the configuration
of the ADSL-modem's server...
'Fully educate' is otherwise beyond the scope of this document. :)
