I'm trying to set a DHCP server on 13.10. I installed:

sudo apt-get install isc-dhcp-server

My configuration files look like this:

/etc/default/isc-dhcp-server

INTERFACES="eth0"

/etc/network/interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf

ddns-update-style none;
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;
authoritative;
log-facility local7;

subnet 10.167.100.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
{
    range 10.167.100.150 10.167.100.200;
}

When I run sudo service isc-dhcp-server restart I get:

stop: Unknown instance: 
start: Job failed to start

My ipaddress details:

What am I doing wrong here?
