Is the file named hpcdd.conf or is that a typo?

That *should* throw an error due to the netmask. If you're just using
the 192.168.4.129 - 254 addresses I would change it to

subnet 192.168.4.0 netmask 255.255.255.0

Otherwise the netmask of 255.255.255.0 will lead dhcpd to think it
should be offering for 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.254.

Does it give any other errors?
