This reply comes a long time after yours, but I like it when some of my
postings are replied to better late than never ;-).  

You've had several knowledgeable postings already in response, and I
know nix about networking, but I just saw this mini HOW-TO and thought
it may provide some answer to you needing to avoid running DHCP:  

Network booting with GRUB
Here is a little HOW-TO on network booting with GRUB and Knoppix. The
advantage of this method is that it does not need a DHCP server like
Knoppix-Terminal-Server. It uses GRUBs ability to load files over the
network (using TFTP) and then uses an NFS server to mount the Knoppix CD
image. This is interesting in environments where you have no control
over the DHCP server and must not start you own one (unless you want to
meet the sysadmin ;-)

The above quote is found at: 
and the HOW-TO is at:

Hope that's of some help.
