Help me configure a DHCP server.

This is for an Edubuntu LTSP server. Edubuntu must connect to the 
outside world through eth0 (where it must receive an address via DHCP) 
and it connects to the thin clients through eth1 (where it must hand out 
addresses via DHCP).

I think that I need to configure these two files:

   * /etc/network/interfaces
   * /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf

But I don't really know what to put on them. Especially the second one. 
I've read this page:

But I still don't really know what I should do. The above page doesn't 
really explain how dhcpd.conf works. It just gives a recipe that just 
happened to work for one person.

I would be grateful for any information you can provide.
