Question about assigned IP addresses

I have a question about the assignment of IP addresses for my Windows 2003R2 SBS.
First, the background:
There are two Enet cards in the server, one of which is disabled. The other has a static IP 192.168.1.1.
There is a Linksys Router at 192.168.1.1, which is connected to the server and the other cleint workstations.
The DHCP service in the Linksys router is Disabled.
The DHCP server on the Windows 2003R2 SBS is Enabled, and the available address pool is set to 192.168.200 - 220.
Currently, there are several client leases assigned via DHCP at 200, 207, 208 and 209.
I have RWW set up and am using it sucessfully.

The questions:
1) There are several leases listed at 192.168.1.201, 202, 203, 204, 205 and 206, each with the name of this server - Where did these come from?

2) An IPCONFIG /all shows that there is a Ethernet adapter assigned the IP 192.168.1.2, which is correct but also shows
a PPP adapter RAS Server (Dial In) Interface with the IP 192.168.1.206, with the Description WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface. What is this interface and do I want it? How do I disable it?

Thanks.

1. These are reserved for RAS (dial in access) - are they presented by a yellow telephone icon?
2. Same as above - Remote access is not enabled by default so no need to worry.

You have allocated a small pool of IP addresses so I assumed you only have a small user base?

That sounds like a fair answer. I will leave things alone, then, since all seems to be working well, knock on wood!

I have allocated a small pool since there are only 4 workstations in this office.

Thanks for the help
