from http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/netsh_dhcp.mspx?mfr=true

You cannot run these [DHCP] Netsh commands locally on Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition.

edit: To clarify, you can still set an XP machine to use DHCP through netsh via:

netsh interface ip set address name=”Local Area Connection” source=dhcp

NETSH SHOW HELPER

If DHCP is not displayed, add the DHCP context:

NETSH ADD HELPER DHCPMON.DLL
