in order to use it, with the NEW dhcp servers I did the following.

on the server config file, add a host entry that looks something like:
host my_host.my.domain {
        option dhcp-client-identifier "my_host.my.domain";
        fixed-address ;    #this is my local address, can be any.
this part enabled the dhcp server to look up, and assign ip by that
name, insted of the hardware address. and in my testing, work both with
servers version 2 and 3(beta) .

as far as the client, i could only get it to work with version 3 . the
config file looks like:

send dhcp-client-identifier "my_host.my.domain";
send host-name "my_host";

the above will cause this client, to  always get the ip,
regardless of the hardware interface being used.

in order to implement it onto grub, it is needed to add the option to
supply that dhcp-client-identifier field to the grub dhcp  cliend, and
make it relay it to the server on it's dhcp request.
