OS: Ubuntu Ultimate Edition 1.3

I want to have my Ubuntu desktop act as a DHCP server for my XP laptop, and get an ad-hoc LAN going.

I have configured my two wired Ethernet interfaces, eth0 and eth1, to have a static IP address of 192.168.9.9 and a subnet of 255.255.255.0 . Then, I configured Webmin to use eth0 and eth1 under "Edit Network Interface".

I configured the subnet as follows:

Network Address: 192.168.9.9
Address Ranges: 192.168.1.5 - 192.168.1.5
Netmask: 255.255.255.0

Then, I clicked "Edit Client Options" and set the following:

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Routers: 192.168.9.9

I saved the subnet and went back to the main screen. Then, as recommended, I clicked Edit Client Options and switched "Dynamic DNS Update Style" to "None"

Then, I attempted to start the DHCP server, and got the following error:

Code:
dhcpd self-test failed. Please fix the config file.
The error was:
No error type or code was displayed, so I have no idea what is wrong.
Here's the config file:

Code:

# No service will be given on this subnet, but declaring it helps the

#subnet 10.152.187.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
#}

# This is a very basic subnet declaration.

#subnet 10.254.239.0 netmask 255.255.255.224 {
#  range 10.254.239.10 10.254.239.20;
#  option routers rtr-239-0-1.example.org, rtr-239-0-2.example.org;
#}

# This declaration allows BOOTP clients to get dynamic addresses,
# which we don't really recommend.

#subnet 10.254.239.32 netmask 255.255.255.224 {
#  range dynamic-bootp 10.254.239.40 10.254.239.60;
#  option broadcast-address 10.254.239.31;
#  option routers rtr-239-32-1.example.org;
#}

# A slightly different configuration for an internal subnet.
#subnet 10.5.5.0 netmask 255.255.255.224 {
#  range 10.5.5.26 10.5.5.30;
#  option domain-name-servers ns1.internal.example.org;
#  option domain-name "internal.example.org";
#  option routers 10.5.5.1;
#  option broadcast-address 10.5.5.31;
#  default-lease-time 600;
#  max-lease-time 7200;
#}

# Hosts which require special configuration options can be listed in
# host statements.   If no address is specified, the address will be
# allocated dynamically (if possible), but the host-specific information
# will still come from the host declaration.

#host passacaglia {
#  hardware ethernet 0:0:c0:5d:bd:95;
#  filename "vmunix.passacaglia";
#  server-name "toccata.fugue.com";
#}

# Fixed IP addresses can also be specified for hosts.   These addresses
# should not also be listed as being available for dynamic assignment.
# Hosts for which fixed IP addresses have been specified can boot using
# BOOTP or DHCP.   Hosts for which no fixed address is specified can only
# be booted with DHCP, unless there is an address range on the subnet
# to which a BOOTP client is connected which has the dynamic-bootp flag
# set.
#host fantasia {
#  hardware ethernet 08:00:07:26:c0:a5;
#  fixed-address fantasia.fugue.com;
#}

# You can declare a class of clients and then do address allocation
# based on that.   The example below shows a case where all clients
# in a certain class get addresses on the 10.17.224/24 subnet, and all
# other clients get addresses on the 10.0.29/24 subnet.

#class "foo" {
#  match if substring (option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 4) = "SUNW";
#}

#shared-network 224-29 {
#  subnet 10.17.224.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
#    option routers rtr-224.example.org;
#  }
#  subnet 10.0.29.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
#    option routers rtr-29.example.org;
#  }
#  pool {
#    allow members of "foo";
#    range 10.17.224.10 10.17.224.250;
#  }
#  pool {
#    deny members of "foo";
#    range 10.0.29.10 10.0.29.230;
#	}
#}
# Primary Submet
subnet 192.168.9.9 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
	option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
	option routers 192.168.9.9;
	range 192.168.1.5 192.168.1.50;
	}
Am I doing something wrong?
