Set A records, and PTR's, for the addresses in your DHCP range. The
client becomes "dhcp-0-101.example.com" for IP address 10.0.0.101 in
the first DHCP range, and "dhcp-1-101" for IP address 10.0.1.101 in
the second range.
There's a lot you can do with this, but hat is key.
The other useful trick is to set DHCP reservations: Reserve a
particular IP address for a particular MAC address when it's plugged
into a specific zone, so the same client always gets the same IP
addresses in that zone and SSH and SSL keys remain consistent with
that client host.
