You should be able to setup the W2K DHCP server.

You can define a reservation, add some host (harware mac) to it and
specify some custom parameter using named option or directly its number,
for 'next-server' and maybe 'filename' (I dont know to much LTSP)


OPS: Les sugest to avoid the separate reservation and put all new options in
your already existing reservation, why not !
