Thanks for the replies. I guess for us, we have had issues with our aging
windows server where it has temporarily failed and left us without DHCP and
DNS for periods of time. This has impaired the business greatly more than a
couple times in the past 18 months. The obvious answer is to get a more
robust windows server but it would be nice to explore non-Microsoft options
as well.

I think a Linux box running DHCP might work in our case but I'm not the guy
calling the plays. I would think it could be dedicated to DHCP/DNS alone to
keep separation from other machines. I'm not a network guy, so my
understanding of this might be a little off.

Anyways, thanks again for your information.
