First thing to do is to upgrade the dhcpd package as the default one is outdated. The old one works if you just want to use it go ahead. Then just use the same format of file as you have done before, or the format in the documentation. There are several options there and they may not be needed for your server.
When you start the server you can check your log file and see if there is an error.
If you have an error and need help post the dhcpd.conf file, error messages, discription of your network, output of ifconfig, and output of rpm -q dhcpd.
You will probably need to create the dhcpd.leases file, I don't think it is in the rpm. This is the main problem I have seen. Your log file will indicate this problem.
service dhcpd restart; tail -f /var/log/messages
