I know this is a real old post but you can use a 2950 switch as a DHCP Server. You just need to start the service first, then configure it just like a router. I did it on one of my 2950 switches to test after I saw a video on YouTube where someone did it. As he mentions, this could do more harm then good because of the lack of controling broadcasts.
What's up? Yeah this is an old post! lol Off the top of my head I would say IP addressing is at layer 3. So the DHCP leasing needs to be at the same layer with either a SVI or routed port on the switch. Remember any device looking for a DHCP lease needs to know where to get it. Hence assigning an IP to a SVI or routed port on the switch so it knows where to send the request. Once the port is at the right layer addressing is possible. IMHO this really isn't real world unless it's a smaller network. Hope this clears it up, if not just reply we're you stuck and I'll try to clear it up for you. ;-)
