[ubuntu-za] local DNS

Hi Guys

I have fun little project using an embedded PC running Ubuntu.
(This one is called a "Cherry Blossom", which is based on a "Beablebone 
Black", which is similar to, but more industrial than a "Raspberry Pi".  
Who thinks of these names?!)

Anyway, Ubuntu Arm for these device come with:
- g_ether USB gadget, which gives you Ethernet over USB
- isc-dhcp-server, which assigns a fixed IP address to the PC
So with this setup, you can plug the device in any PC and get a 
known/fixed IP address to connect to it.

I'd like to add another dimension to it. I'd like to enable DNS on this 
network so I can use a hostname instead of an IPaddress.  I could find 
many saying that it should already work, but nothing on how to set it up 
if it doesn't work.

I'd appreciate a kick in the right direction from anybody that knows.
