Windows Server 2003 Private Nertwork on 2nd NIC

Hello,
I have 2 NICs on my Windows Server 2003 box.  Is it possible to use one of them for a dedicated private network for a small group of people - possibly with a Wireless Router?
The other one is used to connect to the wired LAN.
The reason for this is to allow one dedicated NIC for LAN requests (10Mbps limit) and the 2nd NIC for a 100Mbps-bandwidth private network.

if i understand right all you want is to have two networks each served from differant nics. Then yes you could configure one with an ip range of
IP 192.168.0.1 GW 255.255.255.0
and the other
IP 192.168.1.1 GW 255.255.255.0

But this could also be done with a single NIC by using the alternative IP setting. I think you need to give me more info on what you want to achieve and to what purpose, unless i am reading it all wrong.

Thanks,
Purpose: Create a private network for a small team of users which allows access to the server at higher network speeds (using a wireless router) than our existing LAN connections.  
Intent:  To prevent our small team of users from maxing out the 10Mbps LAN bandwidth and allow transfer of data using the 2nd NIC.

How would I set this up?

create a seperate subnet for the "fast" team on a NIC that is faster as per my first post.

you can still use DHCP for the fast group but this gets a little tricky, and if it is just a small team then i would just set there machines statically.
