DHCP 2 scopes on one server question

i have inherited a windows 2003 dhcp server which has 2 subnets.  172.16.86.x and 172.16.88.x
the 172.16.88.x subnet is to be used with RF clients only.
How can i ensure that desktops that in the environment pick a 172.16.86.x address and not the .88 address?

thanks

Only way I know of to prevent dhcp assignment of specfic addresses is mac reservations.  Which would mean you'd need to do a mac reservation for each of your non-rf IP's.  Each scope does/will have its own reservation list.

Quick but acurate tutorial on creating DHCP reservations.

we are only using DHCP from the server - nothing is configured on the switch
