thanks for the help. Well I want to know a basic question that for making a DHCP server in Linux does it require DNS server to resolve computer names.
Just for example. I have 10 computers (Windows xp and Fedora 7 ) in a my lab and all are connected through a workgroup envioroment with a IP Scheme 192.168.1. There is no gateway as well.
For assigning automatic IP addresses from Red Hat Linux Server does it need DNS and default gateway to work ?
2--- what changes should I apply in the DHCP configuration file which u have sent .Kindly if u make a little bit change for my own seanario should be too much gratefull.

Its not necessary to give Default Gateway, but i am not sure about DNS as i have not tried this, but you can always test it out.

well I have installed dhcp for test purpose. I have copy and past the dhcp configuration file in /etc/dhcpd.cong file
There is no router,no DNS and no default gate way. I want want that my clinet machine which is windows xp should automatically assign IP address. For that purpose how to make remarks like
IP of main default gateway
option routers 192.168.1.1;
should I use ; or rem to disable that line .
