Well instead of fixing IP you can make workstation section based on the
MAC address of client in the lts.conf But the diversity of clients would
need a minimal tweaking. Or as suggested change all cards to ones that
are recognisable by X without problem (autodetected)

Add a comment line before each workstations section to identify the workstation. This is possible in both dhcpd.conf as well as lts.conf so that any time changes occur you are able to "relate".

If you are using 4.0 onwards there is a command setting "LIKE" where you can point the lts.conf workstation section to similar workstation without doing detailed configuration.
