    You could give them a static IP address outside the permitable range of your DHCP server

    Hope this helps

      Why would you want a user to not get a DHCP IP -- you would have to set it up for a particular PC and if they used multiple PCs you would have to set them all up as static IPs

        I don't see the logic behin it, but you could do a reservation on the DHCP based on the user's computer MAC address, and give it an IP that's not on the right scope. It needs a bit of playing around with superscopes but it can be done.
