You can configure the dhcp client not to set its hostname to "unknown" when no name is supplied by the dhcp server.

I think if the /etc/nodename file exists, its content is used as hostname. Anyway, to have the dhcp client not to request a hostname, edit the /etc/default/dhcpagent file and remove "12" from the PARAM_REQUEST_LIST variable.
