I have a Win9x based DHCP server which is serving a small number of 
addresses at the bottom of my IP range. I have done this  to provide 
addresses SHOULD the LTSP server be offline. I couldn't configure this 
server to pass PXE / BootP requests to the LTSP server (poor 

I also have DHCP running on LTSP so my terminals can boot correctly. DHCPD 
allows me to specify hosts and fix IPs to mac addresses. This is very 
useful. I also use Webmin to do this work.

As an aside. I use WinVNC to remote administer my DHCP server. It takes 
about 30 seconds to re-enable DHCP on that server if I have it disabled. 
Using Webmin allows the same thing with DHCP on the LTSP server.
