the machine in question when I boot into windows the router shows the
computer and assigned ip address(dhcp). When I boot into 42.3 nothing
shows up on the router, dhcp or static ip.

But maybe the router can not display a machine that has no IP address.

how can one have a networked machine w/o an ip address?

shouldn't the OP assign/reserve the machine an address in the router

Not on a normal (home or simple) router. You only do that when you want
to assign a given IP to that MAC, always.

However, some routers can be configured to not give addresses to non
listed machines. This should be combined with an strategy to find rogue

I have seen the feature on simple routers only on the WiFi side, as a
security besides the password.
