using a router to bridge traffic and do dhcp for one interface

I have a cisco 3600 router that due to circumstances beyond my control has to be used to do the following:

1. Bridge traffic from one side to the other on the same 10.?.?.? network.

2. Act as a dhcp server for one interface handing out ips in the above 10.?.?.? network.

I know its overkill... but due conflicting requirments and scarcity of equipment... this has to be used...  Also I need to know how to restrict the dhcp to one side of the router.  I dont want the router being a dhcp server for both sides... just one side, I want it to ignore dhcp from the other side.

Points divided amongst answers...

Per cisco this cant be done.  Bridging will not allow the dhcp to be filtered on an interface.  Because its now layer 2.

I just redesigned the network.
