DHCP entries are done in /etc/ltsp/dhcp3.conf

Here is how I did the same thing you are talking about:
# Default LTSP dhcpd.conf config file.


subnet netmask
#set a static ip outside dynamic range
#for printer in lab
#set up lts.conf with same MAC
#set up cups on server to use this IP
 #computer lab
        host printer
          hardware ethernet 00:04:5a:51:16:b7;
 #black printer in Teachers' lounge
        host TeacherPrinter
          hardware ethernet  00:09:6b:12:8e:24;

#options for all dhcp clients
    option domain-name "";
    option domain-name-servers;
    option broadcast-address;
    option routers;
#    next-server;
#    get-lease-hostnames true;
    option subnet-mask;
    option root-path "/opt/ltsp/i386";
    if substring( option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9 ) = "PXEClient" {
        filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";
    } else {
        filename "/ltsp/i386/nbi.img";
