Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2005-07-05 14:29:32 UTC
 The problem is the command you used to start dhcpd : 
 # dhcpd start
 would make dhcpd look for an interface named "start", which
 would be the only interface it would be configured to serve, 
 and which probably does not exist on your system.
 You probably meant to do:
 # service dhcpd start
 # /etc/init.d/dhcpd start
 Which would use the dhcpd initscript to start dhcpd to serve any
 interface on subnet .
 If multiple interfaces are on this subnet, you could put the
 interface name you want dhcpd to serve in /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd -
 ie. if the only interface you want dhcpd to serve is named "eth0",
 putting this line in /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd will make dhcpd only
 serve eth0:
