You may not need a whole book for this, unless I misunderstand your 
requirement. I believe almost all decent VPN solutions should be able to push 
the IP address of an internal DNS, to the client, together with the client IP 
address, and other stuff - via dhcp. I am doing it with Netscreen, but - as 
your request was in reference to open source - here is a "lucky" finding from

push "dhcp-option DNS"  #push DNS entries to client
