Microsoft Active Directory? I thought that was bastardized LDAP? It
uses DNS updates for something? If so, let me know if there is anything
to do to make the script more useful in such an environment.

Is it a ISC DHCP server? I've had a pretty easy time getting FreeBSD
clients to send hostname info which the DHCP server which then does
updates to a BIND DNS server. Like I said earlier, my original motivation
was self-updating for IPv6 addresses just like IPv6 hosts pretty much
configure themselves with rtsol(8). Well, since it's all ISC software,
you would hope it all plays well together. Does using MS in the mix make
life rough?
