When you issue the ip address (with DHCP I'm guessing) can you not also  
give an extra DNS server (on or one of your other linux  
boxes).  Then when the user's main DNS fails to pick up the address it  
does to your one and resolves.  Will be a little slower as it waits for  
the other DNS to fail but it will at least work.

Failing that, can you give your users a hosts file which includes the name  
and IP address?  Not great if you have thousands of them.
