    I have a Win2k Server at home and now I have a cable modem. I have 3-4 PC's hooked up coming from the four ports on the wireless modem/router. My question is i'm running a domain and I don't know which to assign for DHCP. Do I disable the DHCP on the server and manually assign the workstations an IP? Do I let the router assign DHCP addresses? I'm confused and can't find good literature on it for home networks that are small with domains.

    It does not matter which one you have assigned to handle DHCP. The only thing that is necessary is that you hae the clients assigned to use the W2k Server as their DNS server. Things will still work if you use a different DNS but is not recommended.
