This will probably appeal:

Summary     : A lightweight caching nameserver
Description :
Dnsmasq is lightweight, easy to configure DNS forwarder designed to provide DNS (domain name) services to a small network where using BIND would be overkill. It can be have its DNS servers automatically configured by PPP or DHCP, and it can serve the names of local machines which are not in the global DNS. It is ideal for networks behind NAT routers and connected via modem, ISDN, ADSL, or cable-modem connections.

I'm sure it's on my Debian CD collection.

I don't think these are grom Glenrowan though.
