I remember reading an old HOWTO or some similar documentation that I can no longer find on setting up a nameserver daemon to take the place of my ISP's nameserver (which is frequently not working or is very very slow). As I recall, this required both the nameserver server, and some method to obtain and maintain a robust routing table.
Could someone kindly provide the appropriate HOWTO or instructions on doing this?
I am running Gentoo 1.1a, Linux kernel 2.4.19.
An emerge script would be even better (100 bonus points).
