Cool how to add dhcp based clients to forward and reverse zone files in fedora 4?

hi everyone,
as in my previous thread i mentioned that i've configured a small lan with only two clients i.e linux and windows machines..they have static ip addresses and have names mentioned in my fedora 4 server's forward and reverse zone files and hosts the question is how can i add entry to my forward and reverse zone files of clients configured through dhcp services from my fedora 4 server..unders windows 2003 server which is being managed by me at the moment i never have to add any of my client in forward and reverse zone configuration..all i need to do to bring any of the windows clients to my domain/network is to make a user account on the server 2003 machine which automatically assigns ip addresses to my new clients and the newly added client automatically appears in "Active Directory users and computers" the same thing possible on linux server without bothering too much about adding client machine ip address and name given in forward/reverse zone will be cordially appreciated in this concern...thanx

If you want them to have dynamically assigned IPs, just add a range of IPs in dhcpd.conf.

subnet netmask {
option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address;
