The alternative to the use of DHCP for address handouts is to dump dhsp and give everyone on your local net a hardwired address in everybodies host files. Large network == maintainance PITA though.

Not really a solution. Ethernet functions under assumption that each station on local network segment has unique MAC address. If you have two stations with same MAC address, DHCP is not the only thing that gets in trouble.
