dhcp server installed in servers are more configurable (more options) (either Windows server or linux server) than in router or switches.
They are not normally installed on Switches.  They are installed on Routers, Firewalls and more commonly Servers (Windows and *nix)

Usually  DHCP runs from a server in a DOMAIN based network.  However, some networking hardware appliences, such as your home wireless router, have limited DHCP capability and will work fine for a small, WORKGROUP based network.
