If you want to segment your network into three LANS, you have to give them IP addresses according to their subnet masks. At this point you need a router that segments the network into three LANs. Each router`s interface will be your gateway for each of your LANs. Switchs (and hubs) can not make subnets (or broadcasting domains)but only a router does. You can also use your W2K server as router but in that case it will need to have three ethernet interfaces.
Hope this help.

use DHCP and give them different scoop.
using different network id/ip addresses
should work fine.
