Hi Folks,

I am trying to build up a PXE Boot server + client in work for a little research project.
The server has 2 network cards installed, so it has one for the PXE NEtwork and one for the normal Internet.

so far I cannot get DHCP running
error message is
Code:
 * Caching service dependencies ...                                                                                     [ ok ]
 * Starting dhcpd ...
 * start-stop-daemon: failed to start `/usr/sbin/dhcpd'                                                                 [ !! ]
 * ERROR: dhcpd failed to start


my conf in /etc/conf.d/
Code:
# /etc/conf.d/dhcpd: config file for /etc/init.d/dhcpd

# If you require more than one instance of dhcpd you can create symbolic
# links to dhcpd service like so
#   cd /etc/init.d
#   ln -s dhcpd dhcpd.foo
#   cd ../conf.d
#   cp dhcpd dhcpd.foo
# Now you can edit dhcpd.foo and specify a different configuration file.
# You'll also need to specify a pidfile in that dhcpd.conf file.
# See the pid-file-name option in the dhcpd.conf man page for details.

# If you wish to run dhcpd in a chroot, uncomment the following line
# DHCPD_CHROOT="/var/lib/dhcp/chroot"

# All file paths below are relative to the chroot.
# You can specify a different chroot directory but MAKE SURE it's empty.

# Specify a configuration file - the default is /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf
 DHCPD_CONF="/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf"

# Configure which interface or interfaces to for dhcpd to listen on.
# List all interfaces space separated. If this is not specified then
# we listen on all interfaces.
# DHCPD_IFACE=""

# Insert any other dhcpd options - see the man page for a full list.
# DHCPD_OPTS=""
IFACE="eth1"


my dhcpd.conf in /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf
Code:

ddns-updates on;
ddns-update-style none;
authoritative;
default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 86400;

#subnet 0

subnet 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0
{
#option domain-name "quadro.net";
option domain-name-servers 192.168.0.1;
option routers 192.168.0.1;
option broadcast-address 192.168.0.252;

next-server 192.168.0.1;
filename "pxelinux.0";

range 192.168.0.100 192.168.0.254;

# services 1 - 9
#    192.168.0.2
host host1    { hardware ethernet 00:1E:0B:3B:73:A8; fixed-address 192.168.0.2;     }
#host host2    { hardware ethernet 00:1B:A9:83:4C:7B; fixed-address 192.168.0.3;     }
}

Can you give us a output of messages after you restarted the dhcpd daemon and not just the dmesg after booting?
