Just DON'T RUN A DHCP CLIENT ! In the few Linux distributions I'm 
familiar with, if you statically configure the interface, it 
automatically stops using the dhcp client on it.

BTW - you are setting the interface configuration directly aren't 
you, ie not confusing "configure statically" with creating a host 
declaration for the DHCP server to give a specific address to a 
specific client ?

It doesn't, it simply stops it responding to requests from that MAC address.
