one lan, two domains, one gateway (one internet connection)

Present situation:
1 SBS 2003 (DOMAIN1) - 192.168.5.5; default gateway 192.168.5.1
5 WINXP - DHCP range 192.168.5.1 - 50
I would like to add a second SBServer and a second DOMAIN2 and give the server 192.168.5.200 IP address with default gateway 192168.5.1. They need to share the same internet connection through modem/router 192.168.5.1 and a a few printers in the same IP range.
DOMAIN2 computers I will assign IP addresses statically.
Is this the best\easiest configuration? Will there be any conflicts?
Thank you.

In the past when utilising multiple SBS domains I have split them on separate IP ranges to share one internet connection. This means you will need a router of some type to send net traffic from the new LAN to the current one. DHCP can be done by the second SBS if you want.

i also need to share the printers in between these two domains. do you think that splitting them on separate IP ranges is the only solution? have you ever had two domains on only one IP range?

As I recall it didn't work, hence the split. Problems between the two mainly around DHCP. However the link below seems to suggest it can be done, may have to 'hack' them around a bit to make them work side by side.

May be easier just to split them if that seems like to much effort.

You're going to have nothing but nightmares trying to do this...especially since you want to share printers
Why do you think you need a separate SBS Server for the other group?

On balance I am inclined to agree with CrisHanna - its probably more hassle than its worth.
