track dynamic ips

I have a LAN with a several windows machines and a f16 box. IPs for windows machines are dynamically allocated and they have their own host names. I want to access a particular windows machine from my f16 box. I tried with the host name (ex ping <hostname>) but it doesn't work. ping works with the ip but since the ip changes (after a reboot of the windows machine) it is hard to access through ip.

What I want is to ping to that particular windows machine any time (unknowing what it's ip at the moment is)
