how to install dns on fedora

I've been set up a virtual network which has three PCs, one is Windows Server 2003 as Server, one is Fedora 14 as a router,and another one is Windows XP as a Client. The router has 2 network interface cards and server and client has 1 network interface card.

I want to configure dns on router, so What do I do for that? how can I install it?

I also setup dhcp on server and also create a scope to release ip address for client. when I try to renew ip address in client machine, I got and error "Unable to contact your DHCP server." So, What should I do for that?

The reason why you get 'unable to connect..' is you'r client can't reach the server. try ping the server from the client, and it will fail.
When you'll set up the router, and routing will work, you'll be able to reach the DHCP on the server from the client.
