You have to configure the DHCP server before starting it. By default, it is not configured. You have to edit dhcpd.conf and start DHCP server. For more info 'man dhcpd.conf' or

I tried to configure dhcp.conf file:

#cat /etc/dhcp.conf

default-lease-time 21600;
max-lease-time 21600;

option subnet-mask;
option broadcast-address;
#option domain-name-servers;
option domain-name "mandrake";
option root-path "";

shared-network WORKSTATIONS
subnet netmask

use-host-decl-names on;

host ws001
hardware ethernet 00:C0:26:62:C5:96;
filename "/ltsp/vmlinuz.ltsp";

I am trying to configure LTSP server for that i need dhcp service should start.

but still it doesn't starts even after configuring dhcp.conf file.

Plz have a look on the above file for any errors. and any idea to start dhcp service.

#cat /etc/dhcp.conf
Note that it is not dhcp.conf but dhcpd.conf

Try renaming the file and then start the service.
