Get the DNS-HOWTO, it's probably already on your machine located at
/usr/doc/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO.gz
simply type
zcat /usr/doc/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO.gz | less
and you should be well on your way.

Ok great thanx, i got that !! seen that i am very generous with my points could you also tell me how to connect a linux network to the internet using a modem seen that the ip is given dynamically upon connection, therefore i neet to get linux to see the new ip address !!

Most linux DNS servers use BIND originally from the BSD people. The
latest is avialabke fomr the Internet software consortium. I
recommend BIND v8 because it is being developed. You porbably have
BIND v4 (what most people use).

Eiher way the DNS database files are the same, I could send you a
named.conf (bind v8 style config file) from a server I know (not sure
that named.boot still exists on that machine). Basically for primaries need the information and seconaries need to know the IP numbers of a primary to ask. Globally vsible domains need pointers from other places by registering the domain with the appropiate people (usually InterNic (.com and .org at least) or nominet (uk domains). A charge applies.

Lets presume u use 192.168.0.1 as an IP address for your linux maschine.
Then /etc/named.boot will look in this way:
--------------------------------------------
directory /var/named ;the directory where bind files are
cache . root.cache ;Internet root DNS servers (dig > root.cache)
primary foo.ru  foo.hosts
primary 0.168.192.in-addr.arpa foo.rev
primary 0.0.127.in-addr.arpa local.rev
--------------------------------------------
/var/named/foo.hosts
--------------------------------------------
@ in soa foo.ru. root.foo.ru. (
                 144 ;Serial
                 21600 ; Refersh
                 1200  ; Retry
                 360000 ; Expire
                 432000 ) ; Minimum TTL
          in ns foo.ru.
          in a  192.168.0.1
          in mx 10 foo.ru.
localhost in a 127.0.0.1
ftp       in a 192.168.0.2
--------------------------------------------
[/var/named/foo.rev]
--------------------------------------------
@ in soa foo.ru. root.foo.ru. (
                 144 ;Serial
                 21600 ; Refersh
                 1200  ; Retry
                 360000 ; Expire
                 432000 ) ; Minimum TTL    
         in ns foo.ru.
1        in ptr foo.ru.
2        in ptr ftp.foo.ru.
--------------------------------------------
[/var/named/local.rev]
--------------------------------------------
@ in soa foo.ru. root.foo.ru. (
                 144 ;Serial
                 21600 ; Refersh
                 1200  ; Retry
                 360000 ; Expire
                 432000 ; Minimum TTL
         in ns foo.ru.
1        in ptr foo.ru.

Check the PPP-HOWTO. There's an online copy at

http://www.infomagic.com/linux/ldp/HOWTO/PPP-HOWTO.html

See section 23 for info on working with/accessing the IP address.
