If you don't need to maintain the lease information, just using a new DHCP install from Win 2000 Server would be easy and straight forward.

Your best bet will be to follow the steps in the KB http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;130642

Also, if you are on a multi VLAN environment, remmeber to set the "IP helper address" to the new DHCP server IP address.

All the best!
