Yes, I did that in an effort to unclutter /etc a bit. The dhcp packages
had too many files just in /etc, so I collected them all under /etc/dhcp.
Upgrading from previous dhcp packages in Fedora using rpm or yum will
preserve the existing files (e.g., /etc/dhcpd.conf), and create symlinks
in /etc/dhcp. However, on fresh installs, the sample file provided by
the package now goes to /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf.
Sorry for the confusion.
