Using DHCP on Server 2008 for two different VLANs

I'm working on a wireless project and wanted to know some specifics about DHCP.  I'd like to use an existing virtual DHCP server on a DC running server 2008 R2 to also hand out addresses to wireless users that will be joining the network from a different IP range.  Is it possible to have the DHCP server hand out addresses from a scope depending on the source IP of the requestor?  To clarify, I want the existing DHCP scope to continue handing out internal LAN addresses to wired clients while at the same time setting up another scope with a different address range and VLAN to be handed out to our wireless users.  My thinking is to either add another network card with a different range to the DHCP server or make the primary connection a trunk port which would pass both VLANs.  I don't know how I would force a particular VLAN to use a specific DHCP scope though.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.
