No, just install the server as a BDC, and choose to install the DHCP and DNS Server services during the install as well.

The only thing I was a little confused about was having to DHCP servers?  So if one is down the other automaticaly takes over?

no, it doesn't work like that.

they'll both answer requests if they're both online. make sure the address scopes in the two servers don't overlap or else you'll get conflicts.

if one dies the other will keep going, but there's no failover possible.
