If I ask the wrong people, I get a similar quote so it might be worth your

That doesn't sound like a mistake to me.  It's what we do.

Please tell us what these changes are and we may be able to help you.  But
right now we can only guess what your network setup is.

You definitely shouldn't need to do this.  You should run one single dhcp
server (usually on the edubuntu machine, though not necessarily), which
will serve addresses to all machines.  In the case of the thin clients some
extra information about booting will be sent.
