Could be.  You need to make sure to make sure that DHCP server doesn't
touch eth0.  This is especially important, because there should
generally be only one DHCP server per network segment.  Obviously, there
is no problem for running a DHCP server on eth1, because that's a
different network segment, but running one on eth0 could be a problem
for the network.

Specifically there is file called /etc/default/dhcp3-server.  Edit this
with your favorite editor and make sure that eth1 is specified in the
INTERFACES= line, but NOT eth0.
