Oddsfish questions here. If you have a DHCP server on your network to which
you have no control and you want to add a DHCP server, is there a way to
suppress the first server or configure your clients to get their IP
information from the second DHCP server?

I don't think so, DHCP is designed so that servers will share load automatically, I don't think there is any built in way to cut one out of the loop. The best fix would be to go to management and request a change. I suppose you could install desktop firewalls and block the address of the unwanted server or something similiar. Why is your network set up this way, and why don't you have control?
