9.4. Get the same IP address every time

In most cases it doesn't matter what IP address DHCP assigns a workstation. Unless you're hosting IP-identified resources such as web or FTP sites on the workstation, other clients won't care what IP address your computer uses. If you are hosting sites for your intranet or the Internet, or you're running special client or server software that requires your computer have a specific address, you can configure the computer to request the same address each time it starts. You do this through an address reservation.

An IP address reservation allocates a specific address based on the client's MAC address (the physical address of the network adapter). When the client requests an address lease, the DHCP server notes the MAC address and assigns the reserved address to the client.
