Exclamation my DHCP is not running


Ive installed fedora 8 and wanted to DHCP server running. So ive installed dhcp using "yum install dhcp"
After installing, ive configured my dhcpd.conf, created touch /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases
i activate it on boot using chkconfig dhcpd on but when i start the service, it failed.
I have test if my DHCP process is running using pgrep dhcpd but it outputs nothing. as i know, i should output some process ID but in my case, its nothing.

here is my dhcpd.conf file:

ddns-update-style none;

option domain-name-servers,;

default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 604800;


subnet netmask {
option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address;
option routers;

Please help me.

Have you tried testing the config file for errors with the following command:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcpd configtest




dhcp, running
