You might as well configure it for 1-nic operation.

You can use a single NIC and network, but you need to pick a single DHCP 
server for the network and configure it to give out all the options you 
need.  Either the windows server can be configured to do that (and other 
clients will ignore the other options) or the k12 server can be 
configured to be the only DHCP server you use.
