A DHCP server will not reply with an IP address from a different subnet.

Same role.

Here is my "solution":
I copied a dhcp.conf file to /var/etc from the exec.php page.

------------ dhcpd.conf -----------
class "blocked" {
         match pick-first-value (option dhcp-client-identifier,hardware);
subclass "blocked" 1:00:00:20:11:22:34; # client mac address

subnet netmask {
         pool {
                 deny members of "blocked";

Just add subclass lines for every client to deny. Don't forget the "1" 
before the mac address. It states hardware type to ethernet.
How to put this into the gui and so on is for some one else.
