I'm a new user to Linux and I've just installed the OS in a test environment. I would like to install DNS on the server.  What steps must I take to install DNS including how to get it installed on my new Linux server?

Thanks in advance.

senma,

Have you checked the documentation.

Or alternately you can browse to http://www.isc.org/bind

It's not that hard.

If you're running redhat, you can get bind* from ftp.redhat.com and do an rpm -Uvh bind* to install the packages as well.

Otherwise, get the bind and bind-docs gzips from http://www.isc.org/bind/ and

tar xvzf
the bind packages, then if you want to be lazy, just cd  into the new directory, do
../configure
make
make install

you will now have /etc/named.conf which is where you add new domains to your dns.

I recommend browsing through the README or INSTALL file in the directory before installing just to get a grounding on what's going to happen though.
