No, there's absolutely no security issue with disabling DHCP. You understand that you must set your computer up to have a Static IP address, a Subnet Mask, and a Default Gateway, along with a primary and secondary DNS server in order to get to the Internet, right? You say you want to do something- I'm not sure whatever you need to do would require disabling DHCP. If you need to know how to setup a Static IP address, post back.
