Windows 2003 SBS and the DHCP server continues to stop after I restart it

I am running windows 2003 SBS and the DHCP server continues to stop after I restart it.
When I open up the DHCP Management Console it has a red cross on the DHCP Server, if I delete this and try to add a DHCP Server (FILESERVER on it adds it but changes it's name to FILESERVER.mshome.net and I have tried to rename it without success. This seems to have happened at the same time that I installed a 2nd NIC to enable windows firewall and VPN access. The Local network still has the same specs ie IP address while the WAN IP is
Can anyone shed some light on my problem?

This is a condition caused by RRAS being reconfigured simultaneously... (adding the 2nd NIC).
