First I apologize about the cross posting on the lists, I don't usually do this. I have been working on configuring a custom dhcpd.conf file that can will not give unknown clients the option to boot to my ltsp or netboot servers and will assign IP's for unknown clients in a different range which will also give me better filtering abilities in the firewall. I also wanted to be sure that clients in a known group of mac addresses were assigned specific IP's for setting default printers by location and such. Also I hope to be able to give different boot options by group so that one group can boot LTSP and another Netboot from a mac server. In doing this I think this could add another way to do load balancing as well, say GroupA get's next-server A and Group B get's next server B (This way many LTSP servers could be located on the same LAN and centrally located, but still boot specific groups of machines). Anyhow attached is a working sample on the start of how all this will work. If/when I get Netboot or say Diskless remote booting to work as well I will post that.
