Running dhcpd3.0.1rc11

I'm running dhcpd3.0.1rc11 on my mandrake linux so that my another pc could get a IP through dhcp.
Unfortunately, there is one windows 2k pc on the same network that keeps sending out bootp packets even
thought it has a fixed IP(not set up by dhcp). I added a few lines hoping that the windows 2k would
be blocked as it kept trying to use each of the ip available in my ip pool!
But, it turned out that all pc are denied to get ip from my dhcpd server. Please help me out.
The lines I added to the dhcpd.conf are as follows:

  host badpc {
    deny booting;
    hardware ethernet 00:50:da:b9:08:c7;

It was recommended by somebody to use a fake IP to fool
that windows 2k PC and it worked.

host badpc {
  hardware ethernet 00:50:da:b9:08:c7;
