Gah, just use a layer 3 switch, all is V easy then !!!

Just a few vlans on the switch, dhcp relay, ip forwarding, multiple
address pools on the dhcp server, and bob is your proverbial uncle !

Just my thoughts

I think that is overcomplicated... a logical segmentation could work
too?

A single DHCP server can be set to hand different settings to different
users... you can create two address pools I think, or map specific MAC's
to
specific networks.... then with ONE physical network, and two mono's
with a
LAN and a WAN interface, one configured as gateway for network 1, the
other
for network 2...

No fancy vlan switch, no 3 leg networks - no segmentation...

You still get the benefit of two routers, which gives you some
redundancy,
and by editing the DHCP settings, you could switch all users to a single
network (in case of network failure)  by just having the users reboot
(assuming windows users without admin rights) / re-aquire their
addresses.

The DHCP server config is a little harrier than most this way - would
need
to be manual I think, but simple enough if you read the man and look at
the
samples.
