does enabling dhcp harm or effect the static IP in linux redhat 5.7
 
I want to enable DHCP service on a boot server to test restoration exercises

my question is: does enabling dhcp harm or effect the static IP in linux redhat 5.7 at the moment? and if not! what are the future problems i might face?

harm?? there's nothing more to it that what /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 says. There is nothing to persist long term if you change it.
