Assing the VLAN an IP Address (or connect to a router).  Ensure the router from that vlan to the dhcp forwards DHCP packets. (on cisco it will be an "ip helper" setting).

then DHCP will then get a request "forwarded" from that network and know which pool to assign the IP from.

Setup the vlan (if it does not exist)
config term
vlan <id>
   name some-name

exit back to the top config level (exit once)

interface vlan <some id as above>
description <some description if you want, not needed be helps>
ip address <ip address> <subnet mask>
ip helper-address <ip of your dhcp server>

exit back on level

You will need to ensure you can route from the swich (ping your dhcp ip) to test
Also ensure the vlan itself is routing ok (set a static IP on the remote computer with the VLAN IP address as its gateway.
