Mine do, but they do so already without me having to do anything.  This
is on a private LAN where I handle all the hardware, so I do let the
clients tell the DHCP server what name to use.

The clients have a hostname set.
When they boot up, they look for a DHCP server to give them an IP.
The DHCP server gives them an IP, and acts as a go-between telling the
DNS server the client's hostname and IP address.

I'll say it again, post your DHCP configuration files (server and
client).

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
