I had a similar problem at one point. It was caused by the schools dhcp 
server giving an ip to the client before my k12ltsp server could give it 
an ip. Basically, you should make sure you don't have 2 dhcp servers on 
the same network. If you can't avoid that then do a search of March or 
April of this year to find a solution how to have them co-exist. Search 
for "2 dhcp servers" in the archives.
