    There are restrictions on what type of server can be the "1st" DHCP server, and the book doesn't clearly explain this:

    ie, stand-alone 2000/2003 servers cannot be authorized but can coexist, 2003 DC in AD network can, 2000 server in a network with no domain can, 2000 member server in AD network can.

    To me, this just is a bunch of details, not really getting the idea behind these restrictions.

    nothing to do with a "first" dhcp server comes to mind, however (in a domain environment) a dhcp server must be authorized, and only servers that are members of a domain may be authorized, which means DCs and member servers.
    a stand alone server cannot co-exist in a domain environment, it will shut itself (or the service at least) down. if it is on the same subnet that is.
