All you need to do is add the 10.0.0.0 DHCP scope to the Wiindows box, and then attach a second NIC to the 10.0.0.0 network, and assign a 10.0.0.0 IP address to that interface. Do NOT assign a gateway when configuring TCP/IP for that interface.

What are you confused about? First of all, I recommend that you don't multihome a Windows server unless you have good reason to, like like you are connecting to an iSCSI SAN. Don't use your server as a router or firewall unless you are installing Microsoft ISA or TMG Server. In order to support DHCP services for multiple subnets, just create the DHCP scopes on the server, and configure the routers on the remote subnets to forward DHCP requests to your Windows server. On Cisco devices, configure "ip helper-address aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd" on the interface local to the DHCP clients.

OK.... Sorry for they hasty post. here is some more information.

I basically have two networks, i is completely isolated by a debian server (which I could set up with the dhcp stuff, but will explain why in a moment). This network is a small network of 3 wlan nodes for a mesh project i am working on. The subnet is a private class A (full range on the 10.0.0.0 network).

The second network is my network that contains all me end users and thus needs to have the windows server as a DC.

Now the reason I decided to multihome the server is that I need WDS from the windows server to install my images to my nodes and I unfortunately only have the one server. So it HAS to be able to pull double duty (or in this case 7 things at once: email, sql, moss, DC, DNS, DHCP, etc...).

I really can not think of any other pertinent information at this moment. But I am sure with further re posts, I will be able to answer them.

Thanks again.

OK... the server does have 2 NICs natively, what about the bindings? I noticed for the DHCP Server config, there was a bindings section... any way to assign each scope to a specific binding?

You don't need to mess with that. The DHCP server knows where the DHCP request comes from, and will only hand out addresses from the correct pool.
