    I have a small network consisting of Cable Internet, 54GL Rtr (Tomato 1.19)
    and a MS SBS 2K3 Server with 2 NIC cards. (10 client ws)

    With all I am reading about SBS server config, it is recommended that the SBS server dish out DHCP in order for DNS and like services to work the best.

    My question is, by turning off DHCP on a Tomato based 54GL router, am I losing
    alot of functionality and features by not using DHCP, or just losing out
    on this one DHCP function?

    You are losing a lot of functionality. But it depends on whether you were using it in the first place.
    By turning off the DHCP you've turned the router into an Access Point.
