Linux DNS Server Track Windows Clients with non-static IPs (DHCP from other device)

I have a Linux 9.0 with Samba 2.2 acting as a domain controller.  While the Windows 2000 Workstations can ping (see) other workstations and the server, I cannot ping the workstations from the server by name.  DNS is working as server finds external sites and caches them.  I could build a host file, but my workstations IP's occationally change as the firewall is providing DHCP.  Although I can fix this by going to static IPs, this would be alot of work in a larger environment.   Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

One good solution to this would be to run a Linux DHCP server and configure it and your DNS to do dynamic DNS updates.
