Arbin, I have a little VCL playground set up on a Dell desktop configured similarly to what you described. The public network is on a vSwitch that routes through eth0, but it has a single static IP assigned to it so I don't use DHCP. The private network is only connected via a (different) vSwitch.
I think the challenge will come in with the DHCP part. I believe the VCL software expects to manage the assignment of external IP addresses to VMs. In other words, it assumes a block of routable IPv4 addresses are assigned to it to manage. Hence a DHCP server on the external network would conflict with the VCL management of those addresses. Someone with more experience setting things up could tell you for sure but that is how I understand it to work.
