have you read the red hat doc's ?
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/manuals/
or called your paid for tech rep ?
if you did not buy RHEL 5 then please use CentOS 5.5

In which case, moved to Server

There is nothing much in configuring DHCP.

1) Install Packages
yum -y install dhcp* ( I am assuming you are using yum)

OR

rpm -Uvh dhcp*.rpm


2) Edit the DHCP config file /etc/dhcpd.conf your way

3) service dhcpd restart

These links will help you out.

Give it a shot, try something and post with your problems if any.

For your convenience, this is a sample dhcpd.conf
Code:

subnet 192.168.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0
{

# --- default gateway
        option routers                        192.168.2.2;
        option subnet-mask                255.255.255.0;


        range  192.168.2.19 192.168.2.26; # Range of IP Addr
        default-lease-time 21600;          # After this time DHCP server will automatically assign new IP
        max-lease-time 43200;

# For reservation of host                  # Assign hostname, IP to a particular MAC
        host vikas                         
        {
                option host-name "vikas.example.com";    # set hostname
                hardware ethernet 00:02:3f:ec:80:cd;
                fixed-address 192.168.2.22;                # This IP can be different than the given range
        }
       
}
