[Dnsmasq-discuss] How to provide DHCP for WiFi hotspot?

I am running dnsmasq on my xubuntu 21.04 laptop, I haven't changed the
configuration from default at all yet.

I have a WiFi hotspot configuration that brings up the WiFi as a
server with IP confuguration:-
    inet 10.42.0.1  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 10.42.0.255

Do I just need to add a DHCP range line such as:-

    dhcp-range=10.42.0.100,10.42.0.200

to /etc/dnsmasq.conf to get IP addresses for systems that connect to
the WiFi hotspot or is there more needed?
