[K12OSN] Dual NIC and DHCP

I've installed K12LTSP (CentOS5) for evaluation.  Server has dual NIC's.
eth0 has the default scheme.  eth1 is static

I have both NIC's going into the same switch/router/firewall, which gives
out it's own DHCP in the 192.168.1.x scheme.  My questions are:

When I plug in a PXE capable thin client appliance, will it know to get it's
information from the 192.168.0.x DHCP server or the 192.168.1.x DHCP server
(the switch/router/firewall)?  (yet to receive the appliance to test this)

Should I just use one of the NIC's and manually assign the appliance's IP
information from the router via DHCP Reserved IP, then update the dhcpd.conf
file, using the 192.168.1.x scheme?
