Your 169..... address is an autoconfig address.  You get this when the computer can not see a dhcp server.  First you should check your network connectivity.  You can do this by assigning an IP address in the scope to your workstation. (192.168.0.100)  Once you have done this.  Ping your DHCP server (ping 192.168.0.2)

If it does not reply then you have a communication problem.  Check your cables and your connections to the switch.

Otherwise if you can ping the server then you have a problem with your DHCP setup.  Make sure that the scope is authorized.

looks like you have 2 network cards on your server.

1) make sure the correct card is connected to the switch.
2) make sure youre  dhcp server applies to the correct card (I think this is known as bindings and is a setting in the DHCP server)

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

simple prblems to check is make sure you did not switch your lan and wan cables
Make sure you computer is setup correctlly for optaining an ip from a dhcp (plug it in at a friends place  and see if it connects) this will narrow down where the problem lies

Commented:
On an unrelated issue.  If you are using Active Directory, you should change your servers DNS settings to look to itself for DNS instead of the public addresses that you are currently using.

Commented:
If you are setup in a domain, it sounds to me like you need to authorize the DHCP server in the domain. When you open dhcp console does the dhcp server appear green or red? If it is red it is not started and this could be because it is not authorized to start in active directory. Check event viewer on your dhcp server also
