vpn vs mixed mode vs statically assign an ip address

I have a Windows 2000 workstation connecting to a Windows 2000 Server via Remote Access. I can connect successfully but I want the user to have the same address every time they connect. I have tried the DHCP reservation with the MAC address 005345000000 but I cannot get the address.
running in mixed mode

Is there anyway around this.  I have a server that we just set up at a colocation that I am doing log shipping to via vpn.  We do not want to use UNC.  Is there a way I can force this server to use the same ip address? If  I specify on the client side, I receive a rejection error for that ip address from the server.  Open for any suggestions. Thx.
