DHCP Scopes for 2012 Server

Hello all,
I have never done this and not sure if it can be done.
I have a server that is on the network of 192.168.2.x.  It will have a DHCP scope of 15 addresses in that network.
The client is getting a new phone system.  They need an DHCP addresses for the phones of 10.10.13.x.  If I enable the secondary card on the file server and give it a static IP address in the 10.10.13.x network, connect it to that network, can I have to DHCP scopes on the same server?  One going to the 192.168.2.x network and one going to the 10.10.13.x network?
Also, the server has DNS installed.  Currently those on the 192.168.2.x network get out to the internet through the server.  Will those on the 10.10.13.x be able to get out to the internet through the server as well?

You can have multiple scopes on one server. Without any helper you can separate them with two network cards or tagged vlans (if your network card supports). Another way is to install a dhcp relay agent in the second network. In this case no direct connection between the phone lan and your dhcp server is required. Most managed switches and business router can act as relay agent. "dhcp helper address" is is called often.
