An SBS DHCP server will not operate in the presence of another active DHCP server.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: DhcpServer
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1053
The DHCP/BINL service on this computer running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server has encountered another server on this network with IP Address, 192.168.100.17, belonging to the domain: .
Suddenly, I have started above mentioned error message due to one of desktop inthe network. That Desktop is not a server/domian but just stand alone windows 2000 Pro PC.
Also it has changed my network's behaviour in a way that all browser request goes to different different sites on that computer.I have IPCOP as firewall and some wiered DNS address are being alloted to pc's from outside.
I have tried stopping SERVER service on that Desktop pc though no luck on SBS to start DHCP.
Kindly guide me what i can do in this case.
