>3 *month*?? Why not just assign them static IPs and be done with it?
we assign static IPs everywhere on campus except for the registration 
vlan in our ResNet and a couple of hipaa pockets behind their respective 
firewalls.  we're not as big as some of you, but do have ~15,000 network 
nodes, mostly all static assignments handed out by the dhcp server.
