    I have a 2003 Server with SP1 installed. I am converting a workgroup
    configuration to a domain. If a workstation was connected as a workgroup
    getting DHCP from the server before it became a DC, then it continues to get
    an address. If I plug in a new computer to the network, I cannot get an
    address via DHCP and must put a fixed address in. These computers do
    receive a DHCP address from my test network. All clients are XP Pro SP2.

    Your server probably has "Digitally sign communications (Always)" configured
    (which is the default). If you disable this until all your clients are
    domain members, then you should be able to allow them to access the DHCP
