I have two routers, one with dhcp turned on and the other with it off. this is a functioning home network. Now, I am trying to integrate into it a windows server. Should the windows server be doing the dhcp and dns work? And if so, what will this mean for the existing network? Will I need to reconfigure this? I am currently installing server 2003 onto my server machine. It is connected up to the network on the main router with dhcp. Any words of advice?

Depends on your needs. If your looking to experiment with AD etc. Then have the DHCP role on your server, and disable it on your router. –  user180103 Dec 13 '12 at 21:32
