hi there, i already create a dhcp server.. that dhcp server will be connected to
3 dhcp server@router, my server will act as a gateway to connect to the net..
so, is it necessary to use a routing protocol? i means, like OSPF, or RIP etc..

The router should be the gateway to the net. It's a lot easier that way. All machines, including the server get a DHCP address from the router. No protocols are needed as long as everything is on the same subnet.

Let's say you have a Linksys router. The default IP address is 192.168.1.1

Any computer on that class C subnet will be in the range of 192.168.1.X

The X is anywhere between 2 and 254. DHCP sometimes starts at 100. The first machine would be 192.168.1.100 and the second machine would be 192.168.1.101

It is always easier to use a router for a router and not a PC for a router.
