What focal length to use for hyperfocal distance with FX lens on DX body...

I have a Nikon D300S cropped sensor body (DX) with a Nikon 24-120 full-format (FX) lens (the lens was purchased with a potential upgrade in mind.) I believe this makes the focal lengths 36-180. When looking up the hyperfocal distance, should I enter the 36 to 180 focal length values or the 24 to 120 values?
