Windows 2003 Server DHCP Question

My coporate network has a 255.255.252.0 subnet.  So my distributed IP address ranges are 192.168.0.0/24, 192.168.1.254/24, 192.168.2.254/24 and 192.168.3.254/24.  I need a select few workstations to always receive a DHCP address on the 192.168.3.254 network.  Is there a way this can be specified within the DHCP settings on the server?  Assigning a static IP is not the best solution here.

As long as the computers are always on the VLAN that the 192.168.3.x they will get the IP addresses that you want if you setup a DHCP reservation in the subnet scope.
At the bottom of the below article you will see the reservation screen shot.

You can set-up and use ClassIDs  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/235272 to allocate IPs from a specific scope
