At this point in time Tim, I think I'll follow the old adage "If it
isn't broken, don't fix it".  But as I add dhcp clients, I fully expect
to add more functionality into the dhcpd.conf, so I'll try inducing
errors when I next need to make changes (if my modifications don't cause
errors anyway).  It is curious though because those 2 lines came from
the dhcpd.conf.sample file. I copied the file across to /etc and deleted
what I didn't need to start with.  Something changed along the way and I
didn't notice.

Thanks again everyone.
