How to make a dhcp server from an Ubuntu install (say if your router doesn't have dhcp).

Install DHCPD3 via synaptics. Then

sudo nano -w /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf

Amend that file to create a subnet configuration (there's instructions in the file)

Then run

dhcpd

at the command line.

Note that the dhcp server itself needs to have a static ip address, which you can set up using the graphical network manager in ubuntu.
