Theoretical Max Lease Time

Hi All,

What is the theoretical maximum lease time that you can set in DHCPD???

I have a series of test VMware player machines a few of my developers use.
The IP address and hostname is allocated dynamically by dhcpd using a class
that matches VMware first 3 octets in its generated MAC addresses.

They boot these VMs randomly via PXE, but what they boot changes as they
develop a new package (automatic RPM/ANT build and a generated kickstart
file). It'd be nice to be able to set the lease time fairly high to ensure
they (within reason) always get the same IP address and hence hostname.
