subnet netmask {
option routers;
option subnet-mask;
option domain-name-servers,;
option time-offset +1; #+1 for Holland?
range dynamic-bootp;
# default-lease-time 21600;
# max-lease-time 43200;


I couldn't think of a way to give it two ranges of IPs, and it wasn't in the man pages either. Oh, RedHat has a tendancy to get grumpy the first time you start dhcpd when there is no dhcpd.leases file. Or more to the point, the version of dhcpd that shipped with RH 7.0, the last time I used RedHat. If this happens to you, just create the file with a single '#' in it, and then try and start the daemon again.

I left in lease times for the heck of it unless you wanted them, un-comment them to use.

Sorry you didn't get a reply on this thread for four days...
