Hi Kai
I want the reverse lookup for my Linux clients. As far as I can see, the 
only way I can get the reverse lookup working is to use static IP. I 
want my Linux clients using DHCP as do the windows clients. Can it be 
done? Is it easier if I switch to SAMBA_INTERNAL perhaps?

I just want a reverse lookup in the same way that forward lookup and 
update works for windows.
