For a quick and dirty transition to a new dhcp server I should be able to do
the following correct?

1)       Shut down dhcpd on old machine

2)       Ensure that new server is listening on correct eth interface

3)       Copy dhcpd.conf, dhcpd.leases, and dhcpd.leases~ to new server

4)       Point my ip helper address at the new server

5)       Start dhcpd on new machine
