You'd do it like this in dhcpd.conf:

host myhost {
  hardware ethernet       00:0e:35:71:e0:16; #mac address
  fixed-address ;     #static IP address

Then I'm out of suggestions besides this:  Try that printer on the server again.  Set it up and make sure it works.  Then verify that you've used the same exact settings (printer model, driver, etc) when you had it hooked up to the thin client. 

Not exactly expert advice, but it's all I've got left!
