    Exclamation dhcp help


    Hey there I am setting trying to set up a dhcp server with CentOS 5.1 on a dell gx260. When I try to start the configuration I get this error message:

    dhcpd failed. The error was: Starting dhcpd: [FAILED]
    I also have installed the OS on a old hp desktop, and got the same results. I don't think it is a hardware issue. If anyone has any ideas that would be great. thanks
