	I just realized that this is a dumb question on my part.
Nothing like getting tired at the end of a long day.
I should explore the server.ddns-hostname option and there may
be a way to do what I need which will be to tell clients, if you
want to be in X class, make XYZ the last few characters in your
host name string and you will get a modified domain name plus
other unique boot settings that other clients do not need.

	If this turns out to be possible, dynamic booters can
steer themselves in to the classes they need to be in to be part
of a rembo cluster or a Microsoft Active Directory domain.
