We have a smaller isolated network that uses Windows 2000 DHCP to dish out IP to the Windows clients.  Just recently some Blade servers were brought online on the same subnet that use a PXE server to load the Linux OS.  The problem is when these Blades need to be reloaded they get confused because of the 2 DHCP servers being online.  Question: Is there anyway on the Windows 2000 DHCP settings to have it ignore requests from these Blade servers by entering their MAC address?
