2000 server setting up default gateway for clients

Ok guys heres a quick question.  I have  a small network setup for a classroom in a school.  take a look at the diagram I made for you at www.dragon-technical.com/setup.jpg

The Router is a little Dlink DI-604  Ive set a static ip address for the LAN side of it to be  I have a DHCP server set up as a DOMAIN controller with an IP Address of  Everything works great for all the clients except one thing.  The default gateway.  

The DHCP server obviously has the assigned ip address of  subnet of and i specified the default gateway on the server as  Success I can get out to the internet.  

But my problem is for all the clients logging in using the DHCP server they get all ip addresses fine, DNS's are fine, but the default gateway is blank.  the clients dont know what the ip address is for the gateway router.  

So really my question is, how do I set up on the 2000 server to tell all the clients who request an ip address what the default gateway is they should use.

configure scope options or server options select 003 router.

Open DHCP expand Scope then right click scope options select Configure options
In general tab mark 003 Router.

you know I ran across that and I thought the same thing before but I figured id ask first then play.  its good to know I was on the right track.  Is that all I need to do is check that and supply the address?
