Unless the other DHCP server also ties everything to a different set of 
specific mac addresses you'll have the problem that it may answer from a 
range before this one responds.  You need to either run on a different 
port with a matching boot floppy, or have one dhcp server supply all the 
options (which won't hurt the machines that don't need them) or put the 
clients on a different subnet.
