Re: [TCLUG:4554] DNS Questions

I highly recommend O'Reilly's DNS and Bind.
You can probably find it at a library.
The HOWTO didn't help me much but after looking
through the book I got DNS up and running quickly.

There are two major versions of bind out there.
One uses named.conf the other uses named.boot.
IIRC, the HOWTO doesn't explain both (they are 
different).  Again, I recommend DNS and Bind.
