Also to change from static ip to DHCP settings, again without rebooting.

Thanks.

It's a copy of a now missing web page that describes a useful technique for this.  While it's targeted at NT4, this works on Windows 2000 (and so far on Windows XP) also.

There is an API in the IPHLPAPI.DLL starting in Win2000 called AddIpAddress() but you'll find that it is practically useless.  Further, an investigation of what Microsoft does in the Network Control Panel reveals that they use the DhcpNotifyConfigChange() call as described in the article.
