Besides unchecking that checkbox, did you set a new hostname value on the NIC?

Do you need the hostname for anything other than the prompt of your shell?
If not, you could hack that pretty easily. Similarly, you could have
your old hostname work with new IPs via an /etc/hosts hack. Still, I do
not know of any reason why setting the hostname would be something lost
during a reboot unless the new infrastructure had some odd tentacles that
forced a change back, which doesn't make sense to me.
