"I decided to take another approach: dnsmasq. This is a small, but powerful, open-source application that's designed to provide DNS and, optionally, DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol), addressing to a small network.

It also supports static and dynamic DHCP leases, and BOOTP for network booting of diskless machines."
