[Gentoo] Setting up a diskless cluster, volume 2: Hostnames

I’m beginning to wonder whether sending the hostname via DHCP makes any sense. We’ll still need DNS for name-based internode communication so we don’t need to deal with static /etc/hosts on every node or some other substandard solution. Maybe I’ll just forward the nodes to a DNS server and deal with hostname from there.
