man dhcpd.conf shows examples of creating scopes for multiple subnets in your DHCP server.

The network cards on your client PC will get an address based on the Network they are connected to.

Depending on how things are connected in your network you may need to configure a dhcp-relay agent on your Router or the PC acting as a router between the various subnets.
