    Hi , want you want is called a "reservation" and it is something common if you use a Wndows DHCP Server, but can also be done adding the entry in you dhcpd.conf. Lets suppose you want to give a host with the mac address 00:1A:4B:84:1A:61 the ip address and the host name MYPC-ONE, then you add this:

    # routing via firewall
    option routers;

    host mypc-one {
    hardware ethernet 00:1A:4B:84:1A:61 ;
    fixed-address ;

    Good luck.
