Automatically Updating named (bind9) with local address translations

I am successfully using SuSE Linux as a gateway, router and http proxy.

I am connected to the internet via a Cable Modem. The Linux machine is running Squid, SuSEfirewall2, dhcpcd and Samba (smbd and nmbd).

My local machines get their IP addresses from the dhcpcd server, these are allocated dynamically. DHCPCD tells each machine to use the Cable Companies two DNS servers for name resolution. I would like to use named (BIND9) to provide a local cache of internet addresses, which is easy, but how can I also provide name resolution for each of the local machines from BIND9 without having to use static IP addresses on my local network or use fixed addressing for each MAC address in DHCPD.

Once a local machine gets an IP address from DHCPCD can this information be given to BIND9 so that it will do local lookups as well as caching internet addresses. Can this be done by either the server or the hosts.

Thanks ...
