How to disable DHCP on a Cisco 857 router

I am setting up a new server with SBS 2008.  When running the "Connect to Internet" wizard it asks me to stop the external DHCP on the router ip address.  The router is a Cisco 857.  Can anyone tell me how to do this in a step by step process.  Thanks, Bill

By default your router is set to work as a DHCP server, if you already have a
DHCP server on your network, you can disable the router function:

On Cisco 600 and 700 Series:

1. Telnet, ssh or connect using the Consol Port.
2. Go to "Enable" mode
3. type: set dhcp server disabled

in router 800 Series routers and upto Cisco 7000 Series:

1. Telnet, ssh or connect using the Console Port
2. Go to "Enable" mode
3. Type conf t (configue terminal)
4. type \"no service dhcp\"
5. exit
6. write

The router will rebuild it's configuration
