Please tell me you didn't type the following, verbatim:
# sh /usr/local/etc/rc.d/isc-dhcpd.sh status|stop|start
If this _is_ indeed the case, you need to try:
#sh /usr/local/etc/rc.d/isc-dhcpd.sh start
If that completes without errors, try:
#sh /usr/local/etc/rc.d/isc-dhcpd.sh status
Once you do this, please respond to the list so we know how it turned
