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.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. 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.

So type it correctly then. We can't be expected to tell you what's wrong with only a single line of info if that line has your typing errors in it, can we? again though, check the dnsmasq.conf manpage for correct options.
it says that this is a bad option
i am very new to linux but it says that's a bad option to why my dnsmasq service isnt running
some general tips:
Post-facto re-editing of your original post makes the thread confusing; anyone coming to the thread after the editing has been done does not easily get the picture. They may then conclude that your postings include random rubbish. If they do, they may move on to another thread that they find understandable, and so it is inadvisable.
Cut and paste any error messages, rather than re-typing them; it is much less error prone
...but it says that's a bad option...
What says that its a bad option (where do you see the error message)? When does the error message come? What is the exact error message?
...why my dnsmasq service isnt running...
Are you saying that no task called dnsmasq is running, or that there is a task called dnsmasq is running but that it doesn't do what you want? What did you do to find out?
The range that you specify doesn't seem to be a range in the usually understood sense, but the same IP repeated; is that allowable?
You don't say what you are trying to achieve by using the dhcp-range=ignore feature, so a clue about that might be helpful.
OK, it *STILL* says "dchp"... is this a typo in your config file or a typo in your post? Is there an additional typo in your config file , e.g. dhelephantsintutuscp-range which was corrected by accident in your post here?
I still don't think that if you are using the option spelt correctly it doesn't make sense. if you want to stop a specific IP being dished out, then just set a reservation for that IP.

What do you expect this option to do? As above it doesn't seem to fit any possible uses of the option according to the man page. Why have you written it like that? What do you actually want to achieve?
