As Merv's said, if SBS detects another DHCP server, it shuts down.
To my way of thinking, you could probably fix it by just restarting the
DHCP service, or just reboot the Server and it'll run again.
Double-check that your router DHCP is not running.
And also what Merv said, if problems continue... post an ipconfig /all
from the server and a workstation.
