From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
If for some reason /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases is missing
'service dhcpd start' exits silently.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RH9: dhcp-3.0pl1-23, FC1: dhcp-3.0pl2-6.16

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service dhcpd stop
2. rm /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases 
3. service dhcpd start


Actual Results:  The script exits.

Expected Results:  If the script detects 
that /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases is missing
it should create it:

  touch /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases
