Guest wireless setup with separate subnet

Hi - i need help setting up a guest wireless network on a different subnet from the work wireless network.
We have 2 D Link AP's that have the ability to have up to 4 SSID's with different VLAN's, DHCP is coming off a Windows 2008 server and all are connected to a Netgear switch that has VLAN capability.
Please can someone help me with this setup - is it even possible to have a separate guest subnet with this setup?
Thanks

Side note:  When setting up a WiFi network for guests, I've always found it most prudent to put that network on a completely different AP with its own firewall.  Ideally it should be in a DMZ but this is not always possible.  In this configuration even if the guests manage to hack the firewall of the AP that they are on, they cannot get access to the primary business network.

Do the VLANs exist on your router or no? That's going to partially impact how to answer.

DHCP is coming off a Windows 2008 server and all are connected to a Netgear switch that has VLAN capability.
So for starters, the switch port the 2008 server is on needs to be able to access all of the involved VLANs. Secondly, you need to create the other DHCP scopes. You may also need to configure DHCP Relay so that the VLANs know to look to the server for DHCP addresses.
