I installed mandrake linux on a computer and want to use it only as a DNS server.  Can anyone help with this?  Would it be easier to use redhat?  I need to know which dns server is easiest to install and configure on a linux OS, preferably mandrake since its already installed but i have redhat too.  The only thing i need it for is a DNS server.  Thank you.

I have configured DNS in redhat. But never tried out in mandrake.

The configuration is not that complicated in redhat .

Well, if you are new to linux then you probably want to use one of RedHat's gui configuration tools, I have no idea what sort of tools like this that Mandrake supplies.  In X click on the little red had, then goto System Settings -> Server Settings -> Domain Name Server.  That will give you access to an easy tool to configure DNS.  To get a good overview of how to set up a domain go to the DNS-HOWTO at http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO.html.

Or you can have a look here for BIND 9 (the latest DNS service) http://www.losurs.org/docs/howto/Chroot-BIND.html
