DHCP Server Config

I am trying to configure my little network with a DHCP using the following RPM: dhcp-3.0.1-10_EL3
OK - so basically, I want to have a DNS ( which will serve domain names for any site I might be testing locally. I have declared first my local DNS then a DNS out on the internet. So, my DNS should have the corresponding fixed address. I think everything else is kinda standard, but do you guys see any issues/ problems with my configuration or is my entire idea (local DNS followed by a public DNS) bonk.

Also, how can I associate my router's mac address to a fixed address without using a zone (like I am trying to do with the DNS)? I don't see any facility in my router to give it a zone or subdomain or anything. Rather, I can only identify it via its MAC.

My dhcpd.conf
ddns-update-style interim;
ignore client-updates;
subnet netmask {
	option routers        ;
	option subnet-mask    ;
	option domain-name              "";
	option domain-name-servers,;
	option time-offset              -18000;	    # Eastern Standard Time
	range dynamic-bootp   ;
	default-lease-time              21600;      #6 hours
	max-lease-time                  2592000;    #month
	host ns {
		hardware ethernet 02:40:28:74:24:13;
Well, I would appreciate any comments - tips - suggestions - donations

can I do the "hardware" option on the same line as the "router declaration" or do I need to set up a sub-class or single item group or what?
