Problem installing 10g on a laptop with DHCP

I've installed Oracle 10g on my development Windows XP Professional laptop,
which has both Ethernet and Wireless networking using DHCP on both. In the
process of installing and creating a sample database, it brings up 3 or 4
dialogs about not being able to find the IP address of the machine, to which
I click the button to use the default value.

In the end, it creates listeners and databases that hard-code the IP address
of my machine, which is a temporary address assigned by DHCP. This,
naturally, is useless to me.

Does anyone know how I can get it to use the machine or DNS name of my
laptop?

replace IP address by "localhost" (w/o the quotes)
