    post the config file but it appears as though it's telling you that your subnet declaration has a syntax error in it.
    declaration should look something like this:

    subnet 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
    option routers 192.168.0.1;
    option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
    option domain-name “example.com”;
    option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.1;
    range dynamic-bootp 192.168.0.128 192.168.0.254;
    default-lease-time 21600;
    max-lease-time 43200;
    }
