First my personal disclaimer regarding this, i wouldn't put the Clonezilla server on the same network/subnet as my production this to prevent network congestion and "accidental" deploys.

That being said, it is possible, and there are numerous ways, here's one:

On the Clonezilla machine:
- Open dhcpd.conf file
- Note all mac-address reservations with their corresponding IP-address (that is if you're using mac-address reservations)
- Remove DHCP server (apt-get remove dhcp3-server)
- Disable the possibility for clients requesting an IP address from DRBL server: /opt/drbl/sbin/mknic-nbi -c n

On the Windows Server:
- Open dhcp-server admin console
- Add all the mac-address reservations (mac - ip address) for all hosts
- add DHCP-Option 66 (use the ip-address of the Clonezilla server)
- add DHCP-Option 67 (use: pxelinux.0)

That should be it I think ...

There are other option, like I said, check this for more info.
