Setting up a DHCP Server

Hello Team,

I'm using Webmin to set up a DHCP server, but so far I'm not having any luck.

I believe my ethernet cards are setup correctly, and I can create the subnet in webmin. However when I try to add the shared network it refuses to let me saying that there is no subnet for the network I choose.

I suspect I'm doing something out of order, but when I go through the webmin documentation I find that its really superficial and doesn't actually explain the process. On top of that, the version I'm using doesn't look anything like the screen shots.

So, does anyone have any experience setting up a dhcp server? The setup I need is pretty simple, and any help would be appreciated. I'm stuck at this point.

Sure, dhcpd is easy, have a look at the default dhcpd.conf and convert that (by hand ofcourse :-)....
