It isn't nearly as bad as you are trying to make it.  "Copy and paste" 
are your friends.  It's easy to set up a section of dhcp.conf for your 
"odd" cards and then copy and paste.  Then change the MAC to match and 
go.  Likewise in lts.conf.  I much prefer this to a blind DHCP where I 
don't know which computer is which.  I want the control of knowing 
exactly which computer has which IP number.  It can come in quite handy 
when trying to investigate "misdeeds".

Realistically, how many clients are you going to "hit" your server 
with.  With even 50-60, this doesn't take long - if you have the MAC and 
the video card info.
