Re: DHCP configuration

I am still very new to Linux. I am trying to configure a machine
to act as my firewall on my broadband connection, which is
working, and to serve as DHCP server to my LAN. I've been looking
for two hours for simple explanations, but, most of what I'm
finding is very old, and contradictory. Can someone point me to a
resource? Also, I seem to see references to a graphical DHCP
administrative tool for KDE but I can't find this - is this
installed with FC3, or is it something that I have to add?

I agree; most of the documentation for dhcpd is pretty esoteric. I'm guessing you just need a dhcpd.conf file that looks like this:

option ddns-update-style none;
option domain-name "mydomain.org";

subnet netmask {
 option routers;
 option domain-name-servers,;

Mind you, this is just off the top of my head. See dhcpd.conf(5) to figure out how to correct my syntax errors ;)
