Sorry, I am male and multi-tasking and I just are NOT working well.  I cannot load this dhcpd.conf file at all.  It errors out with: 
Feb 24 14:09:25 Linus dhcpd: Interface eth1 matches multiple shared networks
During the restart of the dhcpd.  

hmmm...looks like shared-network in the config is what I need.  I will have to try these this weekend and see what happens.  Thanx to everyone's ideas!  They helped lead me in a direction that LOOKS like the answer I need.

Thanx again everyone and I will post if this does not work...

Aye -- I've seen lots of suggestions and some questions regarding what
your output is (ie: wrong interface, wrong address, etc) -- but have
yet to see any answers to questions posed by people :).

IE: as Ben asked:
"Let me guess--all your addresses are getting handed out in the 205
subnet, right?"
