Is it possible to ask DHCP assign a randomize hostname to client?

The actual hostname would be the same, but other machines on the network would resolve it as whatever you set the DNS name to.
Thanks about it.

As I need to create a image for a computer lab which have a lot of Virtual Machines (by VMWare workstation) on top of it. I want to solve the duplicate hostname problem.

4 Computer Lab, each lab has 25-50 Computers,
all the computer is Windows XP locked by SteadyState.
On top of it, there will be a lot of different VMWare image. I am thinking if it is possible to use DHCP + DNS to solve the duplicate hostname problem.
