DHCPD startup failure, mdk 9.2, dhcpd v3.0.1rc11


I have just installed DHCPD v3.0.1rc11 on my mandrake 9.2 server, but I can't get it to work. When I click start server, the only information I get is:

Starting dhcpd: [FAILED]

I have no idea where to start to solve this problem, if anyone can help, it would be much appreciated. This is the contents of my dhcpd.conf file. (ethernet hardware address has been deleted)

# Home
subnet netmask {
# Bob
host fuzzified {

Take a look in the log file to what the error message was. /var/log/messages
You could also try to run the dchpd program as a foreground process with debugging to see what's happening.
Try dhcpd -f
