So if I understand, if you don't delegate some pool, you can't assign 
reservations either.  I've never tried to do that.  I've got several 
machines which I do reservations so they don't change, and as a normal mode 
of operation any machine which has ever gotten a DHCP assigned address will 
normally get the same one again, but I've always got a pool which is at 
least a couple bigger than whatever I have in-house so that I can connect 
machines for service, etc., without having to reconfigure.
