So if anyone is wondering..
I ended up going the simple route - had 11 x 24port 10/100 uplinked to my managed switch - which was running a DCHP server for the public ips from the /23.
DHCP snooping on the core switch came in handy when someone plugged into their access switch with a DHCP server running on their computer. The core switch turned off that port, though this was before we started so it didn't cause an inturruption. Also, my core switch was running a different spanning tree protocol, so it wouldn't negotiate with the uplinked switch until I talked to the network admin.
Next year I plan to have a SPAN (mirrored) port dumping the traffic out so I can anaylze it.
