DHCP3-SERVER on Debian making some noise!!

Hi folks, Im running a dhcp3-server on my Debian Sarge and I put all the windows (XP and 2000) users on my network to work via dhcp.

A few machines get too slow, but the other are normal.

The tests I made was, the server is Debian and the client is the Windows Slow machine:

First: Set the ip static on client and nothing changed.

Second: I stopped the dhcp-server3 daemon and the client got fast again.

I thought that might be some service in Windows that is making this mess, but I stopped all that I can in client and still is slow.

Then I ran ettercap on the server machine, but I got no answer of what could be happening. I saw just some netbios packages in idle state.

My server is running Bind9, is the internet server (nat with iptables), samba server and dhcp server.

All my network is stopped right now, and I must put this working again...(they will make me work on saturday..grrr)

Does anybody can help me? please

My dhcpd.conf is:

# Sample configuration file for ISC dhcpd for Debian

# $Id: dhcpd.conf,v 2002/05/21 00:07:44 peloy Exp $

# The ddns-updates-style parameter controls whether or not the server will
# attempt to do a DNS update when a lease is confirmed. We default to the
# behavior of the version 2 packages ('none', since DHCP v2 didn't
# have support for DDNS.)
ddns-update-style none;

# If this DHCP server is the official DHCP server for the local
# network, the authoritative directive should be uncommented.

# Use this to send dhcp log messages to a different log file (you also
# have to hack syslog.conf to complete the redirection).
log-facility local7;

# A slightly different configuration for an internal subnet.
