Setting up a Subnet with Extreme Networks Switches

Hello Everyone,
I have a new project I am working on for a public school and I am looking for some input because I seem to only understand part of the equation here. They have a network that is running a linux DHCP server and is messing with the windows (mainly vista) DHCP clients. That and due to future expansion I am planning to add a subnet to this site. The network is riddled with Extreme networks summit 200 series switches that are managable and have lots of Vlan options from what I have read. What I want to do is create a network that basically has two subnets at the firewall; one that is servered by a DHCP server and the other by this linux/LTSP server. This will be my first subnet to create but I have worked in technology for sometime and I think I can most likely figure it out but some helpful guidance is always appreciated. The only problem I see (and I am almost certain it isn't a problem) is that the DHCP server (windows server 2003) we will be using for the second subnet will have to be accessible by all the clients in all the sites. Currently, there is just one subnet 10.250.37.0 and I would like the second to be 10.250.36.0. I have managed to connect to one of the switches and add Vlans and ports to those Vlans as well as pretty much all the other things. This seems like it will be pretty darn easy but I just don't know where to begin and how to lay out the project as (like I said before) this will be my first subnetting project. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.
