For Configuring DHCP  1stly u need 2 have one static IP Address. Win2000/2003 server, DNS Service should be stared for Replication. After meeting minimum requirements go to Network services in control panel and install DHCP service.

    For configure DHCP u need to first choose which ip range u want to assign for your Network. Before that u need to authorize dhcp server in Active Directory. After that u need to create pool of ip address that is scope. It also need to activate.

And finally  Installing DHCP is easy.  Authorizing and Activating are straightforward.  The toughest part is investigating all the Scope options and decide whether to implement them at the Server or Scope leve

DHCP- Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol.

this service is used to assign IP addresses to systems in a network.

If in the case of Internet, your system's IP address is assigned automatically by your ISP coz u need to assign an IP address which is not in use and that is well known by your ISP using this service..

1.Check out in the Properties dailog box, you can see the check box marked as "Assign IP address automaticaly" if you make use of Internet.

2.In the case of a local network u can assign an IP address manually.

You should have a Active Directory then follow the below process:

Start-> Settings -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs -> Add/Remove Windows Components -> Select Networking services -> goto Details -> Check Box DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol -> ok -> ok -> ok -> Next -> Finish.

Then you have to goto programs -> Admin tools -> DHCP -> then create a new scope and assign range of IP address which will assign to the clients automatically through Dora Process.

Please correct me if i am wrong
