I use the DHCP daemon - I forget where it's located, but the dhcp mini-howto in
my distro (usr/doc/faq/howto/mini DHCPd.gz ) says try sunsite.unc.edu
/pub/Linux/system/Network/daemons I'm writing offline, in a car back to Austin
right now so I can't check the site but the software works fine for me and the
setup is fairly straight-forward,

]It should be no problem to set up a static IP for your box; just don't
]overlap the other boxes' IPs. If you use linuxconf, it will let you set
]your static IP under networking, otherwise use something like
]ifconfig eth0 999.999.999.999
](replacing the 999's with valid addresses, obviously.)
]Then try to ping one of your other boxes. If you get nothing, or
]especially if you get a message saying the network was unreachable, type
]look at what is shown; try a 'man route' to help you understand it.
]Then try this:
]route add -net 999.999.999.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 dev eth0
]and ping again. If it works, you need to adjust your logon scripts
](actually, runlevel scripts) to reflect this. The easiest way to
]accomplish this is to use linuxconf; otherwise, examine the files in
]/etc/rc.d/init.d; and don't forget to read the
]/usr/doc/HOWTO/NET-3-HOWTO, and other relevant HOWTO's.
