    Make sure /etc/dhcpd.lease file is created. It's needed to start the dhcpd deamon.Did u configure the /etc/dhcpd.conf file. Here in this file u have to set the domain-name. configure DNS servers, default & maximum lease times etc. http://linuxreviews.org/man/dhcpd.conf/ is a good place to study about the this file.
    And also make the server to start at boot time by changing appropriately in #system-config-services
    (Service configuration window).

    Make sure all of the brackets { and } are there and in the right place.
    Had the same thing go on. It just wouldn't initialize. Scanned the dhcpd.conf file and sure enough, I missed a bracket.

    Run
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server start
    and then after you get the error that says to check syslog you can look with
    Code:
    tail /var/log/syslog
    or
    Code:
    grep dhcpd /var/log/syslog
