Thats not really a solution for this problem. Because I can hijack a IP
and this is not really difficult. 

The other problem is that I must include all the automatic assigned IPs
in the DHCP range because I can not guarantee the old IP. 

Use of static IPs in DHCP only can be a solution, make the security
problem smaller but do not solve it. 

But a mass import of workstations with ldap should also be nice. 

I think in this moment a network administrator in a skolelinux network
can not accept other computer in his network where someother is root.
