Static IP to MAC Address Bonding - Juniper SSG5

Just finished configuring my SSG5 for deployment.  Rather than having to assign a static IP address to each workstation I want the SSG5 to be able to see a MAC address, then give it a IP.  Rt now I am able to do this with the current Link Sys device on the network, but I was wondering if it was possible with the SSG5.

An example of this would be workstation x has MAC of 00-00-00-01-0X-00, its setup to automatically get an IP.  When that computer turns on I want the router to see its mac and assign it an IP of 192.168.132 even though my IP block is 192.168.1.100-199....

Is this possible?  If so how do I do it?

AAh, so you want to add a address statically not using dhcp? Just assign the address on the server, why do you want the
the ssg5 to do it via DHCP if you want it to have a particular address?

Well, needless to say this is one of my clients networks,  They arent running a server, their "Server" is a xp machine with shared folders on it that people store their docs.  I am slowly in there revising everything, first the T1 line, now the router, next will be a server.  With that being said, the management wants some of the employees computers to have restricted access, and I have the web filtering pack, but I have it assigned to IP address, since all the comps are on the same subnet.  Some of the employess like to week their settings, and if they change their IP from static to dynamic they will lease a different IP, then be unaffected by the filter...

I guess I do not understand, if the computers require DHCP then they want to allocate ip addresses dynamically, otherwise you assign them statically. If you are going to enable DHCP then use the command I sent you minus thus the static assignment at the end.
