I'm not sure about oidentd as i've not used it, but as you've not gotten 
any response here i would suggest (if you haven't already) expanding on 
the exact problem that you are having with it, i.e error messages etc. 
Or there are other ways to get the same result; most (good) IRC networks 
have a host cloaking ability, either by request or by setting the 
relevant user modes. Please consult the IRC network's websites for details.
