A DNS server does not normally assist much with assigning IPv4 addresses
... I think you mean DHCP server.  To correct running without DHCP
server, you could configure dnsmasq, which is installed on current
builds by default, or can be installed using yum.

Edit the file /etc/dnsmasq.conf .

Use "/etc/init.d/dnsmasq start" to start a temporary server.

Use chkconfig to ask for the server to be started on boot.
