How do machines see each other by name with a hardware DHCP server?
Being in the process of moving over from Windows to a Linux network I'm finding some differences. The LAN has an ADSL router which issues the DHCP connections to clients. There is no DNS running on the LAN. On Windows if I gave each client a name when they connected they could see each other via this name even though the DHCP server gave them a different IP each session. I guess there was something in the Windows networking system which did this, broadcasting the name of newly connected machines to all other clients so they could resolve it. Now I am dual booting them to Fedora C2 final and find I can't "ping morpheus" anymore, I must find its IP address and use that. I don't really want to run a full DNS server and all the machines run the latest Samba. Is there anything I can do to activate this magical discovery system I had with windows please?
