statically map a MAC address to an IP address on your DHCP server.
Which, BTW, isn't a feature of the PIX dhcpd.
The way I would set this up in an office environment would be to use a
NAT pool with an overload address and DHCP. That way, assuming that the
number of users is close to the number of public addresses in the NAT
pool, most users would automatically get a static NAT, and would only
use global PAT if there were no more available external addresses in the
