That depends on who your clients are. If you have 802.1X secured networks, you 
will need a DHCP server. 802.1X does not support passing arguments like an IP 
address on the layer 2 link to the client.
If you have dialup users using PPP, then ip pools are your friend. The IP 
address can then be sent in a Framed-IP-Address attribute and, given the 
dialup server supports it, be transported in the PPP session to the user.
