How to setup DHCP on Network(LAN)

Happy new year 2007 guys! may allah bless and prosper your life. ok guys, my topic for this month is to discuss about the process or step-by-step in setuping DHCP in your network or LAN. First or foremost, what we should know is the concept of DHCP itself. DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, is set of rules used by a communications device such as a computer, router or networking adapter to allow the device to request and obtain an IP address from a server which has a list of addresses available for assignment. In other words, we as network adminstrator no need to set IP for each pcs. it is done once user switch on the pc and wallah internet connectivity is ready. However, thing to remind is, the particular pc should be address with the valid DNS- Domain Name Server. In not, we just only establishing connection for LAN but not Internet.
