Try locate dhcpd.conf ( as root )

Otherwise just create your own.

mah dhcpd.conf might be of help too.

I had the same question. The answer is simple, it isn't created by default, I had to create it on my own.

Did you look in /etc/confd/ ?

Sample dhcpd.conf

Sure. Here's mine
Code:
ddns-update-style none;
subnet 10.1.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0
{
range 10.1.1.2 10.1.1.64;
option domain-name-servers my.dns.server.1, my.dns.server.2;
option routers 10.1.1.1;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 604800;
}
It's quite a simple setup, which allocates IP's from 10.1.1.2-10.1.1.64, set's their DNS and gateway (option routers) and a lease time (86400=1day). If you need something more complicated, I suggest you read the man for dhcpd.conf and dhcpd.

hi guys,
please use the sample file in /usr/share/doc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf.sample. copy it to /etc/dhcpd.conf and configure it to your needs.
