Mitel SX-200 ICP and DHCP on a W2K Server

I don't know anything about IP phones. We use a Mitel SX-200 ICP and about 26 IP phones with built in switches for connecting PC's. Recently our DHCP configuration got wiped out on our W2K server and now our phones are stuck at "WAITING FOR DHCP". Can anyone help me with reconfiguring the dhcp appropriately? Everything I have read and tried still isn't getting an IP to these phones.

VLAN 1: LAN 192.168.0.X
VLAN 2: IP Phones 192.168.5.X

Also let me know what info you need and I will find out. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The information you provided is minimal, so we must assume that you went into

Start > Program Files > Administrative Tools > DHCP

reconfigured the service and then restarted the service.

If so, and still nothing happens make sure that your servers network interface card is on the same subnet.
Still if nothing happens I'd ensure a reboot of all my phones.
Still if nothing happens, reboot thre server, and again if nothing is happening remove and reinstall the DHCP server service.

My thoughts anyway.

Turns out the DHCP configuration was vendor specific for the Mitel phones. I had to recreate specific additions and assign a certain value to each. I also ended up having to delete the configuration for VLAN ID to get it working.
