W2K3 DHCP Server Ignores Requests

    I have a W2K3 DHCP Server that seems to arbitrarily ignore requests.
    It will sporadically give IPs to two systems (a linux box and a XP
    laptop - the linux box is part of the domain, the XP laptop is not),
    but it won't hand out IPs to other systems.

    I've run Ethereal on the W2K3 system, and I can see the DHCPDISCOVER
    requests coming in, but the DHCP server just doesn't respond.

    Here's everything I've done so far:

    Authorized the DHCP server
    Ensured there is no firewall in place between the systems
    Reinstalled the DHCP server
    Followed the instructions for rebuilding the database

    Any ideas on how to make this server respond to DHCP requests would be
    awesome. Thanks!

    Enable DHCP logging and check log file, if not already enabled. Log files
    can be found in the folowing directory: %systemroot%\system32\dhcp
