Dhcp Server Error

I'm too new with this OS. Redhat 8.0. I want to configure my Redhat to a Dhcp Server..I got this error when i try to start my dhcpd.conf. This is the error message.

Please make sure there is no other dhcp server
running and that there's no entry for dhcp or
bootp in /etc/inetd.conf.   Also make sure you
are not running HP JetAdmin software, which
includes a bootp server.

This is my /etc/dhcpd.conf file.

Two questions (which might be an answer to your problem):

1. Assuming you have more than one NIC, do you have your ethernet cable plugged into the correct NIC card?

2. What is your NIC card's IP address? (dbl-check it)

I think this problem is caused by your system's service.
you can use "netstat -an" to see if the udp port 67 is opened,this port is used by dhcpd. And then use lsof -i:67 to see what program is occupying this port,or use ps -ef|grep dhcp to see if dhcpd is already running.
As depike wrote, your port 67 seems already bound to a service (might be bootp, another dhcpd or...). Hence you have to find what does. So I'll just give you a few RH tips that might be useful.

"service" can be used to manually start/check/stop daemons such as dhcpd:
"service dhcpd status" will tell you if dhcpd has been statrted, "service dhcpd stop" will stop dhcpd, "service dhcpd start" will start it.

"chkconfig  --level 345 dhcpd on" activates dhcpd on runlevels 3 (text bootup) 4 (not used but included) and 5 (graphical bootup - X). Changes will be effective on the next boot. Use service to manually start the service directly.
"chkconfig --list dhcpd" gives you the current configuration of service dhcpd.
