default-lease-time 10800;
max-lease-time 86400;
option broadcast-address;
option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers;
option routers;
option subnet-mask;
subnet netmask{
range dynamic-bootp;
subnet netmask{

when i run the dhcpd service ,i get a message like this:

/etc/dhcpd.conf line 8:expecting a parameter or declarartion.
