I ended up doing RegMon through a DHCP release/renew... nadda. RegMon through an IPL of the computer... nadda! It would appear to me that this above functionality has been disabled in Win2K SP4, or 
who knows... The "Options" area under DHCP\Parameters never got touched - my added key or any of the existing ones. Might just as well come up with another solution then. Just thought I would update 
on where this path ended.
