After releasing, make sure you clean out /var/lib/dhcp3/dhcpd.leases (I

Process I would use to clean it: stop dhcp3-server, clean out
dhcpd.leases, start dhcp3-server.

Tried that too - doesn't seem to help

Its almost as though win 2000 has kept a record and is asking for the same
address in the

Sorry clicked send to early

IIRC, though it has been a long time since I messed with Windows
networking, if the DHCP server takes too long to offer an address,
it will simply use the previously issued address.
