One thing that *might* work is displaying the arp cache.  This is the list
of MAC addresses (and their associated IP addresses) that a given host
knows about; run "arp -an" and look for something new/different/that has
the same MAC address.  

We do this at work periodically when hooking up new machines to a
DHCP server.  There's no question that it would work better if you ran
on the DHCP server itself, but it might work in your situation as well.
