DHCP won't start even when I click it tp do so.

I get the following error messages for DHCP:
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, 10.0.1.5, belonging to the domain: .

Yet I don't understand how that is a problem when the ip v4 for this server is 10.0.1.2?

Suggests that you have another DHCP server running on your network at IP Address 10.0.1.5.

Do you have a router / firewall at that IP Address?  If you do - please log in to it and disable DHCP so that the service on your server can start (without a fight - hardware DHCP will always win over software DHCP).
