"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. You can also use it as a local DNS
for your network systems. Since the DHCP server integrates with the
DNS server, you can also use it to give DNS names to PCs with
DHCP-allocated addresses. It also supports static and dynamic DHCP
leases, and BOOTP for network booting of diskless machines."
