[Samba] Slightly OT - Samba 3 and Windows DNS

Thanks for the answer.  The problem that I have is with the Samba
servers which have static IP's and so need some way of registering with
the DNS server.  As I say the Windows servers seem to do it
automatically but I need a method for the Linux servers to do it.

I thought of maybe doing something with PUMP but hoped some one else may
already have solved the problem.

Any suggestions?

This is not samba related, but anyway:

I think one would let the DHCP server do the registration
in DNS, not the clients themselves.

This would work both for Linux and Windows clients
obtaining their IP number thru DHCP.
