This is why I never use for anything - pretty much all 
consumer-grade NAT boxes use that subnet, and people sometimes try to 
multiply a port by plugging them into the network (with chaotic results 
extending beyond the LTSP boxes) via a LAN port, and they dutifully 
begin serving DHCP to the first 254 clients that ask.

If your network is addressed with or some variant, then I'd 
suggest for your LTSP DHCP config (unless of course you 
need several hundred thousand internal IP addresses for LTSP, in which 
case maybe you could lend me a couple dollars?), and of course, if 
you're using 172 for your regular LAN, then use 10 for LTSP.

The advantage to doing this is that it's a lot easier to debug stuff 
like martian devices on the network or a broken config somewhere.
