Have you any solution to get to work automatically together some kind of dns server with dhcp automatically? I have one domain (not connected to internet) and many clients which i need to configure via dhcp (Win). But I need to have some kind of name server which will register new connected names and "forget" disconnected.

Sounds like you need a Dynamic DNS support. There's an interim implementation in the 3.0 beta version of dhcpd (http://www.isc.org/products/DHCP/dhcp-v3.html).

It doesn't hurt anything for the DNS records to exist for all possible nodes on a network, whether the address is currently assigned or not. One common technique is to simply give each possible IP a name like node-nnn, where nnn can be the node number within the network. For instance using a class C network the names would range from node-001 to node-254.

Almost forgot... In your case you must be running a local nameserver within the network. Are you already?
