Angry How DNS can be configured , to update records dynamically; when using DHCPd??????????

I am using DHCPd , for giving automatically IP, gateway, Wins and DNS addreses to the clients. But now problem arises that how can I configure DNS for those clients. I have unique (dedicated) IPs and unique machine names in my , file for each machine.
But when each machine gets a diffrent address daily (using DHCPd)how my dns could be updated.
Please guide me in this regard.

Why would the clients on the LAN need DNS entries?

Yes, I don't understand this either. Why not eliminate the DHCP and just assign static IP's for you LAN. And then you don't even have to use a DNS server but rather just add all the hosts on your LAN to each of the Linux /etc/hosts file... ??
