A quick google fu search seems to indicate this is possible "IF" you have 2 ethernet cards in the computer you will be using for the DHCP server.

Is there two ethernet cards in there? Can you stick another one in there?

Alternatively if your second network is connected via a router, once you set the DHCP forwarding up on the router it will set the source address of the client in the DHCP Request before forwarding, allowing the server to allocate an address from the correct pool.
