Are there any (good) free DHCP servers for Windows XP?

I will not comment on running server services on XP.

There's an open-source solution here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dhcp-dns-server/

Another, not so open: http://www.softcab.com/dhcp-server/index.php

...but to tell you the truth, I'd let my router do this for me. I'd recommend running your services under Linux, specially if you think you're going to have more "Are there any (good) free 'x' servers?" questions (no offense).

Use a linksys/cicso router. :)

Windows XP Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)?

Windows ICS, and DHCP server associated with it are at best avoided. –  SirStan Aug 4 '09 at 23:17
