Not Authoritative for Subnet

Hi Guys,

I am a newbie so please go easy on me and forgive for any mistake.
I have a network with Vista connected via ethernet plus a laptop  
connected on wifi to my network. I have installed DHCP3 Server and I  
am forcing Vista to use a static IP address. On my laptop it is a  
dynamic one from the range i have put in dhcpd.conf file. My laptop  
is doing fine with a dynamic ip address that is given by my dhcp  
server but vista refuses to work. I looked in /var/log/syslog and the  
error message says 'DHCP INFORM from via eth1; not  
authoritative for subnet' I dont get it as I have  
commented the option authoritative in the dhcpd.conf file.
Could anyone please give me a hand? I would really appreciate it.
