hostname=NAME        Set the kernel IP hostname.
interface=INTF       Set the kernel IP interface name.
dhcp=off|dhcp        Set the kernel dhcp option.

On most LInux distros, kernel hostname and IP address is ignored,
making it somewhat useless. You need to use your normal distro method
to set hostname on domU (/etc/sysconfig/network on RHEL)
