If you want to subnet it then you'll need a router to have an IP address in 
each subnet.  But that shouldn't be a problem.

Have 1..14 as one subnet (15 is broadcast) and have 17..30 as another.

For the rest the best thing to do is to have a router that sends fake ARP 
responses so that the rest of the machines can consider themselves to be in 
a /24.
