I have two domains on a LAN.

One domain consists of only one machine - the other domain has several machines.

Both domains are on the same LAN. Can I use the isolated machine as a DHCP server, or can DHCP only assign addresses in one domain?

DHCP is a generic TCP/IP protocol (a superset of bootp) and thus does not really know anything about the NT domain model, it'll give addresses to unix boxes or anything else as well as M$ clients.

I'd normally disable DHCP on one server and let the other server look after all the addresses. If you want to have seperate scopes for each set of clients either on one server or on both servers then you will have to reserve IP addresses for each specific clients MAC address.
Servers should either have static adresses or DHCP assigned addresses reserved for them.

Yes, you can use the isolated machine to distribute IP-addresses to both domains.
