insert into foo_hosts (hostname) values ( $hostname );

... if there is not already a row in the table for the host.

Just off the cuff, I'd suggest using exec with your database's command line tools. I've used many different databases and they all have a way to execute a SQL script from the command line. If you're using mySQL, these links may give you some ideas.
