Funny that you ask. I had thought about that but not yet tried.

I switched off dhcpd and switched on the DHCP server on a win2k3 machine.  
I verified with a Windows client that it works. No go with the DomUs. Then 
I tried the dhcpd on my gateway appliance. Works. Then I restarted dhcpd 
on the Xen machine and there it works as well and is still working. Let's 
see how long it lasts.
