2003 Server issue with server 2008

Specs: Server 2003, 1/500
Hello I have a working Windows server 2003 running DHCP for my network. It is working correctly because other computers on the network (XP/Linux) are able to obtain an IP address and have access to the Internet. I just installed Enteprise Server 2008 as a workstation machine following this tutorial. http://www.win2008workstation.com/w...
The 2008 computer is only getting 169 IP address and server 2003 cannot see the computer and I cannot get it to acquire a valid IP. Is there anything that would cause 2003 not to see 2008 or vice a versa? I know that the NIC on 2008 is working correctly cause if I bypass the network and plug directly into a cable modem the computer gets on-line without any problems.
Any insight on possible issues would be appreciated.

servers should never use dhcp but that is a side issue.

you have hacked 2008 server to make it work like a workstation. Got me why its not getting to the dhcp server.

The link you have has a forum. Perhaps those doing the same can help you.

BTW I can't believe you are doing this with a legit copy of 2008 enterprise which according to this site is almost 4 grand

We don't support stolen or hacked software in these forums.

Thanks for the information. I am just starting to get into server setups and administration so I will look into what you said about DHCP.

As for it being a legit copy - it is. I am a student in college and Microsoft offered Server 2008 for free through http://www.dreamspark.com along with some other titles.
Lots of cool stuff for us new beginners to play around with.
Thanks for your attempt to help.
