Oh, just one more question:

This actually also influence dnsmasq's bahaviour when ther's no 
reservation, right?
So assume some friend of mine comes along and i don't have any dhcp-host 
statement for his computer and he boots windows and then reboots to 
linux (and his computer is configured similar to mine), then his 
computer will get two different IPs, right?

Can i somehow change the behaviour in that case too?
(I mean: changing dnsmasq's default beheviour to: "ignore client-ID")
