Setting Up Sever 2008 for DHCP on a network that already has a router

bludawg
I guess Im little confused,and I apologize if this question is a little easy for all you pros out there,but here it goes,Im currently working at a large office,we just built a server because they haven't had one in place yet and its long over do,Im currently getting internet from a cable isp that has given me a static address,the router in place is currently configured for this isp connection,I want to add the server to the equation for active directory and dhcp,when I set dhcp up on the server do I have to disable it on the router? and if I do that does my server need two network cards one for incoming internet from the isp and the second outgoing to hand out dhcp and internet of the rest of the network workstations and devices,I guess im confused,can I keep the existing router set up and still have an accessible Active directory server?
