Did you have to setup VLANs on your switch to separate the networks, or use separate switches?  How exactly does the server know to give our IPs for subnet-X to subnet-X instead of subnet-Y?  Does the server have multiple NICs with different IPs on each?... or does it have a single NIC with multiple IPs assigned to it?
