two domains on one network

I currently have Win2008 SBS running as a sharepoint site.  No one logs into the domain, we just use the web site for document sharing and archive.  I want to add a new server - 2008 Standard to our network, it will run our new accounting software.  Only 10 people will log in to the new  domain which will be different than the SBS server.  The workstations get DHCP from the router, and I would add the IP of the new server to DNS on the 10 workstations.
Are there any issues I will run into if I do this?

Not a sharepoint expert so can't comment on that side of things.

However, no issues with running two domains in parallel.

If your users are going to be logging into the new domain then you need to move your DHCP and DNS to the new server as this will save a lot of hassle in the long run - trust me on this!  SBS will need to be fully configured for DHCP and DNS (including forwarders).

What are the hassles in leaving DHCP with the router?

DHCP needs specific options set within it in particular 015 DNS Domain Name.  Don't think you can set those value on your router.

Is there a way that only the users I want get IPs from the server?  I have 10 users that will be on the domain, and 15 that I do not want on the domain, I'd rather they get their IPs from the router.  Any suggestions?
