Probably the best solution is to stop using the dhcp  pool and assign fixed
addresses to each of your boxes. Without knowing details about your network
and distro its hard to get more detailed. This might involve installing a
firewall on your network so you can control which boxes get assigned pool
address and which boxes get fixed addresses. IPcop is a good choice.
