Assigning specific range of IP addresses to a specific Subnet.

People.

Please can you advise on the following:

Scenario - office with 9 floors, each floor on a seperate VLan, would like to assign a set range from a set of IP adresses to each floor / VLan via Windows 2000 and DHCP.  for example:

Floor 1, Vlan1 - 10.50.51.*
Floor 2, Vlan2 - 10.50.52.*
Floor 3, Vlan3 - 10.50.53.*
   "          "             "
Floor 9, Vlan9 - 10.50.59

I know this is possible under Windows NT, as I have done it, but dont seem to be able to find the option under 2000. I dont want to have a seperate server on each subnet !  Please no comments as to why I need to do this, i have a genuine reason !

Is this possible under 2000, if so, can someone point me in the right direction of some information on how to set it up.

Cheers.
