Exclamation ignoring dhcp requests on eth0 and wlan0 define subnet mask?

i'm trying to network two computers together, one running debian and the other fc6, fc6 is the dhcp, PXE, NFS, HTTP, NFS, and whatever else i feel like adding server, i have one minor problem though, i can't get the dhcp system working on it and as such i cannot boot my debian system via PXE, it gives me this error when i attempt to start DHCPd
No subnet declaration for eth0 (
** Ignoring requests on eth0.  If this is not what
   you want, please write a subnet declaration
   in your dhcpd.conf file for the network segment
   to which interface eth0 is attached. **
it gives me the same on my wireless but that isnt the object of my focus atm, i have no idea of how to set this up so if anyone could help me out here it would be much appreciated
