disk-less and ifcfg-eth0 for dhscp

I have made my diskless kernel to do

DHCP sending request....
but no response.

I am not if my dhcpd.conf is correct for diskless.
It is good when I use it for regular network dhcp
using ifcfg-eth0.

Here is my dhcpd.conf.

#ddns-update-style none;
#ignore client-updates;

allow booting;
allow bootp;

next-server s227;
default-lease-time 360;
max-lease-time 720;

option subnet-mask;

subnet netmask {

Did I miss something?
