    This should not be running the server, at least not directly. The init.d
directory normally contains shell scripts that start your services. You need
to see what options it is giving to the server process.

    No. The shared-network is why you are giving clients on the wrong IP
networks. I suspect your script is somehow telling the daemon to only use
an interface that does not work. If you actually installed the daemon into
the init.d directory, you are telling it to use the interface "start", 
"stop", or "restart"; which probably do not exist. If it is a script, try
running the command:

	sh -vx /etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcpd start

That will tell you precisely what commands the script is using.
