Please post some more info:

* The command line you start dhcpd with. If you are not sure, but dhcpd is already running, the command ps axw | grep dhcp will display it.

* The output of the command route -n

i start the dhcp server w/ the command: rcdhcpd start
although it starts at boot automatically

the route -n command returns this on the server:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
64.164.42.0 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 64.164.42.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1

and it returns this when i run route-n on a system hooked up to a netgear router/dhcp server/firewall:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0


ALSO Note: Even though the ps -ef |grep dhcp shows the dhcpd is running, when I do a
dhcping on the dhcp server - I get a "no answer" response. Should I be able to perform
this on the server?

In the SUSE 9.2 book, it gives you a sample dhcpd.conf file that says this should be an
easy setup for you to delve out ips on your LAN. I'm trying to make this as simple as I
can.

Thanks in advance
