Specs: Windows 2003, 1.5 GB
I want to setup a DHCP server on Windows 2003 and share 2 internet connections to the DHCP clients.

I have installed DHCP server on the windows 2003 and have 3 NICs installed on the machine.
NIC 1 connected to a Linksys WiFi router which has a incoming net connection from a MAN (UTP cable with RJ45 connector).
NIC 2 connected to a ADSL router to which ADSL net is coming.
NIC3 connected to an unmanaged switch where all the nodes are connected.

How will I configure in that scenario? What all IPs should I give for each interfaces? How will I route the incoming connection from the DHCP clients to the internet? How will I set priority for each net connection?

First, if you wish to share two separate internet connections, you're going to need a dual WAN router.

Once you buy one, then you'll need to read through the manual to configure it.

Once you've done that, if you still have questions, come back in here and post them.

Just FYI, without a dual WAN router, you can't do what you're asking.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
