The service is not enabled by default.  You have to write an /etc/dhcpd.conf
file in order for it to work.  Do you have that?

# DHCP Server Configuration file.
# see /usr/share/doc/dhcp*/dhcpd.conf.sample  
# dhcpd.conf
# Sample configuration file for ISC dhcpd

# option definitions common to all supported networks...
# option domain-name "fugue.com";
# option domain-name-servers toccata.fugue.com;

# option subnet-mask;
ddns-update-style none;
subnet netmask {
	option subnet-mask;
	option broadcast-address;
	option routers;
	option domain-name-servers ,;
	default-lease-time 604800;
	max-lease-time 2592000;

My computer has always acted as a DHCP server and it was running fine till yesterday

/sbin/service dhcpd restart
Avvio di dhcpd:                                            [FALLITO]

Comment 4 David Cantrell 2008-01-17 17:56:47 EST
It's that lease file parsing bug again.  Just tested your conf file here with a
new patch and dhcpd is starting up correctly.

Building now.  This will go out as dhcp-4.0.0-5.fc9.

I have almost same problem but with dhcp-4.0.0-33.fc10.i386
dhcpd fails to start on start-up, but starts manually just fine after all interfaces are up.

My problem was because of NetworkManager and it's actually Bug #486372
