From your Server 2008 machine, click the start menu, then Administrative Tools --> DHCP.

Expand the tree on the left that has your network name on it, then click on "IPv4".

To add a new scope (new subnet all together) click on the "More Actions" menu on the right, and select "New Scope".  The New Scope Wizard will walk you through adding another one.

To add more addresses to a scope you already have, right click on that scope in the tree, and select properties.  In the General tab, you can edit the start and end IP addresses.
