DHCPD problem - no free leases

I get this message form my (Suse) DHCP server:
DHCPDISCOVER from x:x:x:x:x via eth0: network no free leases

Here is my /etc/dhcpd.conf

ddns-update-style none;

subnet netmask {
host example {
hardware ethernet x:x:x:x:x {

And the client (the printer) which is configured to get automatically the IP address never gets it!!!

Can anyone help?

Many thanks.

your file are missing most of the important lines. Here is my file.

#This is my dhcp server setting
default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 86400;
option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address;
option routers;
ddns-update-style ad-hoc;
option domain-name-servers,;
option netbios-name-servers;
option domain-name "COJO";
subnet netmask {

It should work for your network. Since, we use the same subnet. You could change the domain name to whatever you want. Let me know if you still need help.

You didn't understand...
I just want my printer to have a fixed address assigned..I don't want to use range declaration..

Ok, I guess I don't really understand. If your want a fixed address assigned to your printer. Why don't you manually assign a static IP to your network pritner? Won't that be easier and save your linux box from running an extra process?
