We're not all gentlemen. ;)

So you have multiple separate networks? If so, then I assume you have a
bridge per network? If so, then the server you configure will see the
outside network that the given bridge connects to.

Remember, a bridge is just a "software network switch". If the "switch"
is not connected to the server with a DHCP server, it will not get an
answer to DHCP requests.
