You need to be able to setup DHCP reservations so that each machine will
always get the same ip. I'm not sure if your D-Link router will allow
you to do this. I would recommend that whatever box you are setting up
to do DNS also do DHCP and this box would need a static ip. DHCP
reservations are done by MAC address you can obtain these by using
ifconfig on linux or ipconfig on widows. You may want to have a few
addresses that are free and not reserved for something else in the case
that you are adding boxes temporarily.

You should be able to find help on configuring dhcpd and named on The
Linux Documentation Project mirrored at http://linux.ncsu.edu/LDP/
