Odd.

If you run ipconfig, what does it show you?

Also, there may be something useful in your logs.  It'll vary from
distribution to distribution, but in Debian, /var/log/messages has
information about what the dhcp server is doing:

May  7 21:07:05 vorpal dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:0d:61:1a:dd:8e via
eth0
May  7 21:07:05 vorpal dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 10.90.0.90 to
00:0d:61:1a:dd:8e via eth0
May  7 21:07:05 vorpal dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 10.90.0.90 (10.90.0.1)
from 00:0d:61:1a:dd:8e via eth0
May  7 21:07:05 vorpal dhcpd: DHCPACK on 10.90.0.90 to 00:0d:61:1a:dd:8e
via eth0

Hopefully something in there will give you some clues as to what is
going on.

If you manually assign the win2k machine an address on your network, can
it ping the Linux PC?

The other WIN2K
machine is configured EXACTLY THE SAME, DAMMIT (sorry), and it can't
even
ping the Linux machine by IP address from it!
