	If the names of the clients do not necessarily have
	to be correct, simply host the 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa
	zone on your dns server, and populate it with the
	proper PTR records.  If you want the DHCP server
	to dynamically update the DNS server with these records
	then you will have to so configure the DHCP server.  The
	ISC DHCP server can accomplish this, but you didn't mention
	which DHCP server you are using.
