If you run your own DNS servers, I whipped up a script to do something 
similar a few years ago - it's on my site (v2gnu.com), in the files 
called "Notify if IP has changed). Basically takes it's DNS name 
(home.yourdomain.com) and sees if the DHCP IP matches what DNS is 
reporting. If it does not, it FTP's a message to a FTP server with the 
new IP address. You can script from there to update your DNS. My IP only 
changed once every couple months, so I just did it by hand at the time.
I've got static IPs now, so I never got around to polishing the script 
anymore than that.
