Thank you for replying.  This helped a lot! Now I have my DHCP server
running and the clients are getting their IP addresses.

One other question is, how do you configure the DHCP Server running on
eth1, to serve clients with multiple interfaces?  For example, all my
clients have 2 interfaces (eth0 and eth1).  I can configure eth0 to get
the address from the DHCP server.  How do you tell the DHCP server to 
give a different subnet address to the dhclient request for eth1?

Thank you once again.
