ISC's dhcpd allows the administrator to assign static IPs based on MAC
address.  Under such circumstances, if your dhcpd is assigning
something other than the IP address you so specify, then either your
configuration has some kind of problem, or something is very, very
wrong.  I've used this for years and never had a problem with a
mis-assigned IP address (except when an engineer swapped out a NIC and
didn't tell anyone)...
