You misunderstood the problem: the DHCP server will be inside QEMU, so
it will not interfere with the real DHCP servers you may have.

...unless the vm is supposed to use the real (external) dhcp server. would this even be possible?

No, it cannot be done (sending DHCP requests need root priviledge). Moreover it is not very useful as the QEMU virtual network uses dummy IP addresses which are not meaningful outside.

I just finished the initial version of the DHCP server. It works at least with a Linux guest OS.
