DHCP Renaming your mac?

The DHCP server at my office was reconfigured yesterday and it started forcing my macbook pro to change it’s name. I like having my host name remain constant for various reasons, so I asked in #macosx and some kind user there pointed me to this blog post:

It works on leopard, in case you’re wondering! Solved my problem after a reboot.
