You'll break the existing network if you add another DHCP server. You
either have to use separate networks (physical or VLAN) or configure
your DHCP server to use an alternate port and use a corresponding boot
floppy.  I haven't done this but it has been discussed on the list
some time ago.  If you start with the alternate port approach, perhaps
at some point you can get the Cisco dhcp disabled or modified so
PXE booting will work.
