 Hello there! [[BR]]

 Looks like dhcpd exits when receiving HUP...
 root:~# /etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcp status
 dhcpd is running with Process ID(s) 2851.
 root:~# /etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcp reload
 Reloading DHCP Server...                                               [
 OK  ]
 root:~# /etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcp status
 /usr/sbin/dhcpd is not running but /var/run/dhcpd.pid exists.
 root:~# /etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcp start
 Starting DHCP Server...                                                [
 OK  ]
 Maybe it's better to make '''reload''' a synonim of '''restart'''?
