    My friends and I are about to have our Monthly lan and having to go into the settings for each computer and set each ip up one by one so we have considered running a dhcp server on one of the computers we just use hubs...so how might I do this

    The easiest way is to turn on ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) if you can. This will act as a DHCP server for the other computers.

    ICS won't work when there's no active IC :p

    So plug a modem into the ICS machine and connect on dial up.

    No one has a dialup account nor is there a phonejack in the area that we lan DHCPd Programs do exsist but I don't know how to work a single one of them and I figured that one of you did

    Dude, you don't need a connection. Just two network devices (one nic and one nic/modem/firewire/whatever). The modem doesn't need to be connected to anything (except the computer of course). Turn on ICS and it will work as a DHCP server. Sure, you won't get any Internet, but if you don't have any, so what? :)
