DHCP server with fedora 14

I am trying to set up a DHCP server for a network that does not go on the internet using fedora 14. I have tried several site and every one I look at has a different dhcpd.conf file. I have tried many and every time I try to start the service they fail. Like I said it does not go on the internet. No matter what I do when I try to start the dhcpd service it fails

[root@pcrepair ~]# service dhcpd start
Starting dhcpd: [FAILED]

here is my current config file

# specify domain name

option domain-name

# specify DNS's hostname or IP address

#option domain-name-servers;

# default lease time

default-lease-time 600;

# max lease time

max-lease-time 7200;

# this DHCP server to be declared valid


# specify network address and subnet mask

subnet netmask {

# specify the range of lease IP address

range dynamic-bootp;

# specify broadcast address

option broadcast-address;

# specify default gateway

option routers;

Try using DNSMASQ instead. It is FAAR easier to set up and get going.
