I'm not sure what you're talking about.  In my experience, booting
a Windows 2000 CD and installing from there requires one reboot,
at the end of the installation.  After rebooting, DHCP is already
set up.  Of course, I'm just talking about the installation from
the viewpoint of a newbie.  The base Windows 2000 installation is
simply a security hazard.
