In the end I decided to weed out the old dhcpd.conf, which has been
around since sarge. I copied and pasted the netbooks from dhcpd.conf
into lwat one at a time (only 18 of them), wishing that there could be
a comment field. The comments in dhcpd.conf really helped me to know
what computer is where.

I have re-installed the ltspservers and entered them in lwat as they
were ready. There were only 3 printers, then the rest of the statics I
am reinstalling/cloning over the next few days, so I'll just enter
them gradually also.

Still I would wish for a bulk import of machines, and a comment field
for a future version.

Thanks for the advice
