You can use either.  While workstation is geared around the end user (GUI etc), there's no practical difference between workstation and Enterprise server (apart from what platforms and number of CPU's you can run it on).

As Tintin said, there is hardly any difference.

As long as you have the required s/w components installed and configured.

If you have RedHat WS you certainly can use it as a server OS for DNS and DHCP.

If you need/want RedHat flavor without spending money, you can go with Fedora - http://fedoraproject.org/. They peeked up were RedHat 9.0 left.

You can also try other flavors, like Ubuntu server... Its free server OS, and based on my experience its very stable and easy to administer.

Good luck.
