This is the easy way if you can use a separate switch.  The default
install on a 2-NIC server lets you provide DHCP on the client-side
interface only, and will also NAT to the outside if you boot
windows on the clients so they continue to work normally.  This also
avoids bandwidth problems on your network backbone.

If you have a flat network, this takes care of the main problem.
