bootp causes SOA?

My problem:
My LAN dns server is requesting SOA? from an external dns.

Details:
I am running RHL 9.
As I sniff the LAN and the DMZ I see that my Linux Box (acting as router, dns (bind), dhcp, and web server) occasionally gets bootpc requests from a windows box (both 98 and XP are doing this).  Right after the bootpc, the Linux Box makes a SOA? request to the external dns with my domain information.  Then the linux box responds to the windows box with a bootps.  What is going on and how can I stop it?

I've tried:
 - Creating zone entries for each host
 - Entering host info into the Network device control (supposed to override dns)

Related: I would like to integrate dns with dhcp services (dynamic dns?) - can you recommend a good reference?

Thanks in advance,
Chris
