Setting clients hostnames via ISCDHCP Server

Hi All!

I have a question about setting the hostnames of DHCP Clients when they 
receive their IP address.  What I am trying to achieve is this - a 
client plugs into the network and the hostname on their Linux box is set 
to, for example "user88" if their IP address received is, 
of "user89" if their IP address received from the ISCDHCP server is

I would be extremely grateful for any pointers to documentation to read, 
or suggestions on config. Also, will config need to be set on the 
ISCDHCP server AND the client connecting?

Many thanks,
