Cisco DHCP Scope

When setting up a DHCP scope on a Cisco router (2610 running 12.x) can you specify a range of addresses for lease?  For example my network is 192.168.1.0/24 but that doesn't mean I want the first available lease address to be 192.168.1.1.  Can I specify .150 through .250 or something like that?  My simple config is below.  Any help would be appreciated.

ip dhcp pool 441
   network 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0
   dns-server 192.168.5.5
   default-router 192.168.1.100
   netbios-node-type h-node

Hey BuildingITC

This document says you can't, unless you specifically exclude addresses or a range of addresses.  See paste:

Excluding IP Addresses
The DHCP server assumes that all IP addresses in a DHCP address pool subnet are available for assigning to DHCP clients. You must specify the IP address that the DHCP server should not assign to clients. To do so, use the following command in global configuration mode:

Command  Purpose  
Router(config)# ip dhcp excluded-address low-address [high-address]
 Specifies the IP addresses that the DHCP server should not assign to DHCP clients.

Hope this helps.

The network statement identifies the interface that will accept DHCP requests. The easiest solution is to setup an exclusion range to  exclude those addresses that you don't want to be used:

ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.149

Now, the first client will get .150
