Using Windows Server 2003 standard x64 edition.  Currently DHCP and DNS by router.  Trying to switch DHCP and DNS to DC.  I shut off DHCP on the router and activated it on the DC.  I pointed the DC to the router for DNS for now.  I turned off all the client computers and turned one back on.  It can't get an IP address.  Under ipconfig, it has a random IP address and there is not gateway listed.  Any ideas?  Thanks.
