No need, you can specify the interfaces that the dhcp server will listen
on in /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd:
DHCPDARGS="eth1 eth2"

Entirely separate and different topics, even though you are correct. In my case I have eth0 to the Internet and eth1-eth4 to the local networks. I *do* have dhcpd set to listen on every interface *except* eth0. Wouldn't want to attempt to serve DHCP to my Internet Service Provider.

However, what I said above refers to the fact that dhcpd *must* know about every subnet configured on the box even if it does not assign addresses on that subnet or listen on that interface. Why? Apparently (according to its maintainers) matching the subnet with the interface is how it determines with certainty which address to assign.
