[Dnsmasq-discuss] I want to try and set up a DHCP "server" to handle one subnet

I am working in an environment where I build Linux servers.
I want to use Cobbler which uses PXE-boot which requires DHCP to work.
This build environment is on one subnet. I would like to run my own DHCP on this subnet using dnsmasq.
This is because the "main" DNS/DHCP, on another subnet, is running on a Windows machine and the admin thereof is not Linux-tolerant/friendly/cooperative.
The information I am looking for is :
How to restrict my server's DHCP offerings to a single subnet.
How must the Other DHCP server and routers be modified to permit this.
?? Disable DHCP relay to/from this subnet ??
Basically, how can I separate my DHCP needs from the folks who do not want to "play nice" ?
