Well, my point, I guess, is that I have 6 bright and linux savoy kids in
the house from 13-21 and I like them to not make static IP addresses and
to recieve their IP addresses from DHCP even when they are trying to get
their damn printer to work, or their friends printer, or even the PSP
game box on the network, even after after disconnecting the printer from 
its home and dragging it up stairs and pressing all the buttons etc. :)  
I just find better human compliance when they
just plug stuff in and it works according to my DHCP files.
