Hmmm. As far as I can remember, in 2002 I can't start dhcpd with several
shared networks. I was not supposed to take it as dogma, and I should
have check again, because so much time has passed. Sorry, this is really
my problem. I should have try it again before you ask such questions.
With regard to static address assignment, there is no problem. Main
problem is exactly with dynamic addresses for unknown MAC-addresses.

Thank you for a tip, I will certainly try to rewrite configuration with
multiple shared networks. And I think, in this case all must be work fine.
