Setting up DHCP

Hey guys,

First time setting up a LFS system so bear with me. I just installed dhcpd following the instructions on BLFS. I'm having trouble figuring out what to fill these two lines with in /etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig.eth0/dhcpcd:

DHCP_START="[insert appropriate start options here]"
DHCP_STOP="-k [insert additional stop options here]"
The manual just says to check the man pages however I don't seem to have the man pages installed for dhcpd.

~Thanks a lot for any help!

The base things you need are just:

START doesn't really require anything unless you want stuff like
-D sets the domain name to what your ISP says
-H sets the hostname to what your ISP says
-t x sets the DHCP timeout to x seconds
There are more things to set depending on what your particular needs are. But chances are you'll only need a combination of these three things, or even none of them.

There's not much to pass to stop, -k pretty much does it all.
