Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I just installed DHCP on my RedHat 7.2, and I noticed no dhcpd.conf file was created (the dhcpd.leases file is created in the /var/lib/dhcp directory, where I thought this file should either be in /etc or /var/dhcp).
Am I suppossed to create the dhcpd.conf file manually???
if you read the dhcpd documentatino then you will see that it does tell you to make your own or use an example at /usr/share/doc/dhcpd/dhcp.conf or such like. always read the docs, it saves a lot of time...
david, i've been fiddling with DHCP recently and been looking at the fixed addresses.... doesn't that kinda go to make DHCP a bit pointless in the first place to some extent? i guess all that info is put into one place but still.....
yes your right, however I like using dhcp for my laptops since I move around with them, and connect to dhcp servers. I also want them to have the same address when I connect at home so the /etc/hosts file is correct, and I know where they are.
If you never move the client then I guess it does make since to just set it static.
No, I have not. But I am using named, so the dns is on my server. I set the clients dns to my servers ip. Currently I use dhcpcd on my server, so the dns from my isp will update /etc/resolv.conf if it changes.
