You need to provide some information !
What OS/Distribution are you running ?
How did you install DHCPD - from source, from package for your OS ?
Are you logged in as a regular user or root ?
Many distributions put the config files in
different places - for example Debian Etch puts
the config files in /etc/dhcp3/. Similarly, most
packaged installations also provide scripts for
starting/stopping the service and applying config
options - again for Debian this would be
/etc/init.d/dhcpd [start | stop | restart ] for
control and defaults for command line options
would be specified in /etc/default/dhcpd
