dhcp3 server config

Trying to set up dhcp server on my network and have a problem with the config. Most references refer to subnets on the networks but I have no subnets, its just a standard private ip network of the 192.168.0.X ilk. Does anyone have a working /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf for this type of network or a plainspeak tute for the config?

You most certainly do have a subnet for your private network. The subnet for 192.168.0.X is a standard class C subnet (*), /24 or Beyond that, all you would need to do is specify the gateway for the network, and the DNS servers. You can do fancy things, like put a MAC address into the configs so that machine always gets the same IP address from the server, or give certain machines (again based on MAC) get a different address scheme than others. Most all of those things are not necessary for a simple network, but all things are possible.

(*) You could if you so elect not make a 192.168 network have a subnet. You could make it larger or smaller, but well north of 99% of 192.168.X.Y subnets will have subnets.

I don't have a config for you, but a sample from google should suit you fine.
