I have my linux box connected to the internet via a leased line.

I would like to host inet DNS localy. Can named be used to setup a DNS server or do I need a 3rd party service?

Are there any easy to use GUI's under X that will help.

Any help/comments on DNS setup would be great...

You can set up a cacheing name server that will serve just your linux box (and any other machines on its network).  Check out http://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO which has a section on setting this up.  And the later versions of linuxconf should be able to set this up for you too.
