dhcp3, assign IP based on client


I wondering if I can assign a specific IP to a machine based
on its name?
I realize this can be done with hardware ethernet address, but
I would prefer to use client-hostname if its even possible.

A regular machine connecting to the dhcp3 server will add an entry to
the dhcpd.leases file, something like:

lease {
  starts 3 2006/12/06 02:45:05;
  ends 3 2006/12/06 04:25:05;
  binding state active;
  next binding state free;
  hardware ethernet 00:17:f2:eb:2a:f8;
  uid "\001\000\027\362\353*\370";
  client-hostname "laptop";

Any chance I can use the client-hostname line and say; if this line
equals "laptop" then give this machine an IP of ?
