Get a hold of Samba-ng or something. The Samba project forker earlier
this year, with standard-samba just concentrating on file serving, and the
other project is concentrating on replacing an NT server completely - it
most likely can do everything you need.

On RedHat 7, it's just "dhcp-2.0".

After linuxworld, a good few of us called down. I called down to the
brewery on saturday (I recommend calling down - during the day, they'll
give you free beer if you talk to them), and they said that it's been
reduced to £15 a head, or £18 if you want food - for all you can drink. I
reckon organise something, for next week or something.
When I say 'free', I mean 'free': free from bond, of chain or command:
to go where you will, even to Mordor, Saruman, if you desire. "
-- Gandalf, paraphrasing the choice between Free and Non-free software
