DHCP Server security!

Hey all,

I just set up a dhcp server and for security reasons I am wondering if there is anyway to somehow only allow people to get an ip address from the dhcp who's MAC address I have and put in like a Allow file or something. Basically I want it to be secure and not allow anybody to get an ip address unless I have set it up so their MAC address is allowed.

Thanks guys.

P.S. I know about firewalls and that kind of stuff but I was wondering if there was any other way.

One more thing. I also know you can do certain ip address per MAC address but I don't want to do it like that, or else I would stay with a static network.

Please Help,
