DHCP not starting

Hi list,

I have a FC3 box with firestarter as the Firewall.  We have fiddled with the box and the dhcpd.conf file generated by firestarter to tie ipaddresses to MAC's.  The now get an error message saying unable to bind to Ethernet port.  Eth0 is our WAN port (no DHCP required) and Eth1 is our LAN port.  Below is the dhcpd.conf and the error message.


P configuration generated by Firestarter
ddns-update-style interim;
ignore client-updates;

subnet netmask {
        option routers;
        option subnet-mask;
        option domain-name-servers,;
        option ip-forwarding off;
        range dynamic-bootp;
        default-lease-time 21600;
        max-lease-time 43200;

host he1 {

host he2 {
