Letting DHCP broadcasts through (cisco 2501)

I have 2 cisco routers at my house and two subnets  I'm using for hosts.(192.168.1.0 and 192.168.2.0)

I have a win2k DHCP server at my hosue with two scopes defined (I have 2 physical subnets so it's not a superscope right?).  One scope is for the 192.168.1.0 network, the other for the 192.168.2.0 network.

The DHCP server is on 192.168.1.0 and all the clients on that network get addresses fine.  Of course, users on the 192.168.2.0 network cannot get an IP address.   How do I configure my cisco router to let DHCP broadcasts through?  I would rather do this, then install another DHCP server in the 192.168.2.0 network.
Thanks

On the ethernet interface connected to the 192.168.2.0 subnet, use the following command:

en
conf t
interface e0 <-- use correct interface
ip helper-address 192.168.1.x  <--- use the IP address of the DHCP server

I did the command and it did not work. Should I be forwarding the proper udp ports on routera, to router B?

You need to use the command on 2501b's ethernet0 interface:

2501b>en
Password:
2501b#conf t
2501b(config)#interface e0
2501b(config-if)#ip helper-address 192.168.1.98   (assuming your DHCP server is this server)

DHCP broadcasts are forwarded by default with the "ip helper-address" command.

Yes 192.168.1.98 is my DHCP server address.  Hmm, I did the ip helper-address 192.168.1.98 command on both of my cisco routers.  When I view the run, it shows up as being there.
 
Yet my clients on the 192.168.2.0 network cant pull down an IP.

The scopes on my DHCP server are
192.168.1.1-192.168.1.12
and
192.168.2.1-192.168.2.12

You only need the "ip helper-address" command on the 2501b's E0 interface.  Remove it from the others.

Are you able to log DHCP requests (Audit in Windows 2000 DHCP server) to see if the request is making it to the DHCP server?

Also try the following commands, should be enabled by default but worth a try.

2501b(config)#ip forward-protocol udp 67
2501b(config)#ip forward-protocol udp 68

If that still doesn't work, can you post your configuration of the 2501b router, removing passwords.

How about a "show run" and "show route" on RouterA?  Perhaps RouterA isn't learning the route to 192.168.2.x?
Does the DHCP server know about RouterA?  Or just the default gateway, the Sohoware.  You might do best to point the server's default gateway at RouterA unless the Sohoware also speaks RIPv2.
