Unhappy dhcpd and dynamic dns update problem

hello everyone,
i'm running this linux router gateway on a slack13 old machine h/w...
it appears that the dhcpd server doesn't receive client hostnames correctly and as such it doesn't provide the right data to BIND...

in the end the whole setup doesn't do what i would like; ie. the dhcpd to attach the hostname of each client to the domain name of my internal network ... so that then i can use that fully qualified domain name to access that client....

please read this recent post in linux/server.. that never got a proper answer... just a dispute between 2 senior members for no reason

i am basically looking for some pointers and perhaps a top level examination.... ie 'that i have dhcpd.conf contains smth wrong' or that 'the clients do not do the handshake the proper way...

thank you for your help

This may help some basically you have to tell bind to allow dhcp to update your zone. You may also want to consider using dnsmasq it may be easyier to setup for a home network than dhcp/bind.
