Are you wanting to just use DNS for name resolution or set up a DNS server. The former is done by including your domain name and the IP(s) of one or more nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf, something like:

domain mydom.tld
nameserver 1.2.3.4

The later case is more complex and there's no simple answer. It all depends on what the DNS server needs to do and what the DNS namespace looks like. If I know more about what you are trying to do I can help.

PLEASE DONT WRITE IN CAPITALS.  IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE YELLING.

Installing and configuring dns is complicated.  Check the O'reilley 'configuring bind' book for starters.

Is this requirement part of some formal educational course? The policy of EE is not to provide solutions to "homework assignments". We can, and will, provide assistance on a specific question, like:

"I've set up a DNS server and it's complaining about no default TTL set, why?"

In cases like that I, and others, tend to provide a pointer to where you can look up the information, assuming such information is readily available. In this case I'm going to direct you to "DNS and BIND", published by O'Reilly & Associates. It's the definitive reference on DNS and has lots of information that you need to know before you attempt the configuration of a DNS server.
