Hi everyone,

I have a big problem here...I configured dhcp v3.0b2118
when I type dhcpd start.....I get a message stating no defined subnet
here is my dhcpd.conf file
Please tell me am I going crazy or there is a bug in this beta version

# Define global values that apply to all systems.
option domain-name "igicom.com";
option domain-name-servers;
#option netbios-name-servers ;
#option netbios-nod-type 8;
#option nis-domain "igicom";
# Set up a subnet
subnet netmask {
        default-lease-time 604800;

        option subnet-mask;
        option broadcast-address;

1. RH 5.1 flawless ftp-dhcp install; dhcp config retained; dhcp fails @ boot

DHCP fails to configure a network connection, even after it worked
wonderfully for an ftp install of RH 5.1 and I retained the network
configuration during the install process.  The relevant message on the
console during bootup is: DHCP ... failed.  The only message in
/var/log/messages that appears to be relevant is "no DHCPOFFER".
/sbin/ifconfig lists nothing for eth0.

A number of modules relevant to DHCP are loaded. I assume that all
necessary modules have been loaded.  The eithernet card also appears
to be correctly recognized.

I've read but not yet tried the Red Hat hacks listed in the DHCPcd
mini-HOWTO.  Has anyone successfully used these on RH 5.1?

13. Doesn't like using DHCP as an option if no DHCP is available
