It sounds strange to me, that you got 30 IPs assigned to 1 NIC and
you ran out of usable ones. Didn't you think about changing size of
your subnet assigned to that NIC? If you'll assign a subnet mask of
255.255.255.0 you'll get 254 usable IPs. Now you can forget about
your 2nd NIC. All you have to do (after changing the subnet mask on
server) is to change mask on hosts in your network (you can leave
other settings unchanged).
Hope it will work for you.
