cvs/ssh question... may be OT

If this is OT, please accept my apologies and send me in the right

I've been using WinCVS and TortoiseCVS successfully on a Windows 2000 laptop
with a Linux-hosted CVS repository. Response times have been excellent over
the local network. 

I noticed that if I switch from a hard-coded IP address (and related
settings such as netmask, gateway, and DNS) to DNS that the ssh link takes a
long time (~10+ seconds) to connect. If I switch back to the hard-coded IP
address, it comes back immediately. If I ping the CVS server from the
command line, it comes back immediately. The CVS server is always addressed
by IP, not by name.

I'm wondering how to get the immediate response with DHCP. 

Using standard Windows 2000 network settings dialog and dhcpd on a separate
Linux server. /etc/dhcpd.conf is:

default-lease-time 1200;
max-lease-time 9200;
option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address;
option routers;
option domain-name-servers,;
option domain-name "";
subnet netmask {

[domain-name changed to protect the innocent]

George: Oh, sir, if we should happen to tread on a mine, what do we do?
Captain Edmund Blackadder: Well, normal procedure, Lieutenant, is to jump up
250 feet into the air and scatter yourself over a wide area.
