Set up 2 networks behind SonicWall TZ-100

I'd like to set up 2 networks, a 192.168.1.x and 192.168.2.x using only 1 TZ-100 SonicWall router.  One side will have to be assigned DHCP from the router.  The other will be DHCP assigned from my server.  Is it possible to do this?  The 2 sides should NOT talk directly.  How do I go about setting it up.  It's a brand new Sonicwall.

Whatever you want your primary network to be on, i'd use the LAN interface for that. then, create a new zone for the secondary subnet ( or assign that zone to one of the available physical interfaces. whichever subnet you've assigned with the dhcp server, simply disable the dhcp scope for it to avoid conflicts.

you'll want to make sure that your network switching doesn't cross or connect the two interfaces. if you vlan keep those separate as well.

make sure your newzone <> LAN firewall rules are denied.

the spare interfaces may have portshields assigned to them so you'll need to modify those. i've included a PDF about portshields.
oops, to clarify: whichever interface the DHCP server is on, you'll want to disable the dhcp scope on the sonicwall to avoid conficts. on the sonicwall, this is found under network > dhcp server.
