Re: Down with DHCP!!!!

You might consider keeping DHCP, but removing the public pool of addresses.  Lock each IP address down to specific MAC 
at the DHCP server.  You will be able to retain many of the benefits of DHCP such as the ability to remap IP address 
blocks from the server instead of changing IPs on each client individually, as well as maintaining other important data 
at the server level such as the pointers to the router IP and the time server for your subnet.
Another interesting idea would be to run both the DHCP server and the router for the subnet on the same box and hack up 
a script to generate the DHCP configuration and the router MAC whitelist from the same master config file.
