No - in a word!

You are better off letting a server handle DHCP, rather than a router as you have greater control and with SBS, you MUST use DHCP on the server or it won't be happy.

Not really a good idea to move DHCP to your router unless you have a good reason to do it. Contrary to what Alan says, SBS will still run OK if you move the DHCP role off it but I wouldn't move the role to a router, only another server.

DHCP is installed with SBS by default. What exact issues are you having here?

To access the DHCP server console, click on Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > open DHCP

Here is a very good write-up / read about SBS 2008 and DHCP and the reasons why you should run it on the SBS server and not a router:

If you want to remove it from the SBS server, it also shows you how and how to make SBS happy.

Personally I would leave it running on the server.
