Okay, as everyone is well aware by now, I am attempting to set up a 
router for my home network using DHCP. Every step I take causes more 
problems. eth0 is successfully grabbing the IP address from the @home 
server, but my internal network is refusing to grab an IP from the 
server running on eth1. Ive added a route for with no luck.

First, this is the contents of my /etc/network/interfaces (which 
works... thanks Phil):

iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet dhcp

iface eth1 inet static
# gateway

Now, here is my dhcpd.conf file
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;

option subnet-mask;
topion broadcast-address;
option routers;

option domain-name-servers,;

option domain-name "blvue1.ne.home.com";

subnet netmask

Im beginning to suspect a routing problem. But frankly, Im stumped.

In other words, HELP!!!
