1)YOU NEED TO INSTALL DHCP SERVER-GO TO CONTROL PANEL, NETWORK,SERVICES &ADD DHCP.YOU SHOULD SEE DHCP WITH OTHER SERVICES
LIKE WINS,RAS etc.THE DHCP SERVER MUST HAVE A STATIC IP NUMBER .RESTART PC,DHCP MANAGER IS CREATED IN YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS.OPEN DHCP MANAGER,YOU NEED TO CREATE A SCOPE FROM
THE IP ADDRESSES GIVEN BY YOUR ISP WITH THE SERVER IP NUMBER YOUR START IP TILL THE END OF SCOPE.SELECT UNLIMITED FOR DURATION & O.K. TO ACTIVATE SCOPE &YOU ARE RUNNING.YOU THEN INSTALL THE CLIENTSIN NETWORK SERVICES,PROTOCOLS &TCP/IP PROPERTIES & CHECK
"OBTAIN IP ADDRESS FROM DHCP SERVER".YOU CAN PING YOUR SERVER IP TO CONFIRM CONNECTIVITY
-----REGARDS--HOPE IT HELPS--

First, (as in the other answers)add MS DHCP Server as a network service, configure your server with a static address and load DHCP Manager.

Within DHCP Manager, there are really just three things to set up initially: the range of IP addresses tobe assigned, the gateway address of the network (called "router option 003) which will be either the server if you don't have an external connection on the network or the router if you do, and the address of the name server (DNS or WINS or both). Other parameters will work fine with the defaults.

To make sure it's working properly, boot up a workstation set for DHCP and once it has booted up completely, go to a command prompt and type "ipconfig /all". Review the settings and see if they look okay. If so, you're done.

The other answers above are all very good, just some added advice: (1) Read the Microsoft info on setting up DHCP and WINS before you start. 2) If you don't have pre-assigned public IP addresses, use a DHCP scope of 10.0.0.1 through 10.0.0.255 witha subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 (254 total addresses) - these are private addresses that are not used on the Internet and will ensure that your internal IP scope doesn't conflict w/any Internet browsing you might do. And (C) upgrade your server to at least SP5 or SP6a after you have installed DHCP and WINS. There are some significant improvements, particularly with WINS databases, in SP5 over SP4. Good luck!
