Does your version of Linux/DHCPc use "pump"?  ps ax | grep pump

If so see the pump man page,  "/sbin/pump -s" dumps the current DHCP 

A simple script should be able to use something like sed to replace the 
phrase WINSSERVERIP in smb.conf with the IP grabbed from the pump output 
before Samba is started.

Well, it's handy for using the WINStoDNS hook too.
