Turning off DHCP on Cisco Pix 506E

I will have to evEentually turn off the DHCP services running on my Cisco Pix 506E.  A Windows 2003 Server will be serving DHCP requests for local workstations.  What will I have to configure on the Cisco box via CLI?  

In other words can someone explain what will happen once I put a DHCP server on the network?  I would like the DHCP server to use the same scope that the Pix is currently using.

You will have to disable the DHCP server service on the PIX before you enable any other DHCP server:
PIX506#config ter
PIX506(config)#no dhcpd enable inside
PIX506#write mem

You don't have to do anything else on the PIX.
Just make sure that the scope on the Windows DHCP server cites the PIX inside IP as the router in the global settings.
