[Dnsmasq-discuss] dnsmasq difficulty

I have just begun trying to configure dnsmasq, and am encountering a 
problem.  I am also really new to Debian, so please bear with me.

I'm running Debian Etch.  The package manager installation of dnsmasq 
v2.35-1 went fine. But it doesn't start at boot up.  Running it manually 
in a root shell I'm getting the message

< dnsmasq: failed to create listening socket: Address already in use >

There's no other dns or dhcp daemons running, so I have no idea what 
socket/address the message is referring to and even less which software 
is creating the conflict.
