I'm trying to build up a script that will query WMI on computers to determine if they are using DHCP or if they have a Static IP assigned to them. I'm not real sure if this is even possible. I'm not that great at WMI, so I could really use a good resource for figuring that part out. More specifically, I'm trying to find the spot in WMI where DHCP information is, and how to query that in powershell.

Slightly modified the script found here...
http://pshscripts.blogspot.com/2009/01/get-ipaddressps1.html 

You could setup a variable
$computername = Get-Content "C:\TEMP\computerlist.txt"
and feed it to a foreach loop with the below script...
CLS
$IPconfigset = Get-WmiObject Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -ComputerName PC24211-VM02, PC24211
$count = 0  
foreach ($IPConfig in $IPConfigSet) 
{  
   if ($Ipconfig.IPaddress) 
   {  
      foreach ($addr in $Ipconfig.Ipaddress) 
		{  
		"IP Address    : {0}" -f  $addr; 
		"DHCP Enabled  : {0}" -f $Ipconfig.DHCPEnabled
		$count++   
		}  
   }
}
