Unhappy kcmdhcpd

I am running RH9 and I installed the ISC DHCP manager for KDE today.

I previously installed ISC DHCP and that went through just fine. I created the leases file in /var/state/dhcp/dhcpd.leases but i didn't configure the /etc/dhcp.conf yet. i was hoping to do that with the KDE manager. Not to mention the i manually copied the /etc/dhcpd.conf file since it was not created there when i installed dhcp. I am not sure if this is normal or not.

So i installed the KDE manager and that seemed to have gone through perfectly. I installed version 0.3.7 from the /usr/src directory.

But now i am not sure how to open up the manager.

i tried kcmshell dhcpd

i get QMutex::Unlock error

i seemed to have found an icon in /usr/src/kcmdhcpd-0.3.7/kcmdhcpd called dhcpd.desktop

when i click on this icon nothing happens. when i run it from the terminal it just shows the dhcpd.conf info. no manager starts.

i did some reading and some people say you have to update your redhat-menus? Well, i am not sure how to do this. The only command i found on previous posts on the web is update-menus and that doesn't work, command doesn't exist... not sure where i have to run this from.. Any ideas would be very helpful. Thanks so much in advance.
