IIRC, the 192.168.1.0/24 network is what Win32's dhcp servers hands
out by default.
Win32 is pretty weird about this, too. After I placed a DHCP server on
segment shared with a Win98 box, the Win98 box noticed this and put up
a dialog box informing me that it was stopping DHCP service - which
wasn't intentionally on (Windows does lots of crafty little things
behind the users back [some like it, some don't]).
Win98 has a program that can be run to release a lease as well,
entitled "WINIPCFG" (or similar). Perhaps the other Win32 boxes have
that or something like it so you can force them to start trying to
obtain a new lease.
