Hmm, the man-page seems to be inaccurate here. The dhcp-host section
refers to the dhcp-range section for the <network-id> description. But
the dhcp-range section says:
When it is prefixed with 'net:' then its meaning changes from setting
a tag to matching it.
That is, the meaning is reversed.
An other problem is the specification of the ip-address. When I omit the
ip-address from the dhcp-host setting, I get
BOOTP(eth0) 00:03:12:54:ab:de no address configured
How do I specify that for the given range of mac addresses dynamic
ip-adresses should be used?
