If the machine is completely disconnected, connect it to an active networking component (an otherwise disconnected hub/switch), so that the TCP/IP stack can start.

Assuming you just installed the DHCP service as a backup solution, did you reapply SP6a (and any subsequent hotfixes you might have had installed) afterwards?
Otherwise, try to uninstall the DHCP service, reboot, and reinstall (SP6a!) again; assuming again that you need this is a backup solution to be activcated in case the primary is down, check this article on how to copy the DHCP database to the BDC to make your life easier:

If it still doesn't work, please post the *verbatim* and complete message in the event log.
