If you are talking about having the Linux server resolving domain names with your DNS server, then edit /etc/resolv.conf and put in:


where the numbers after nameserver is the IP address of your DNS server. You can have a few lines of it.

If you are talking about registering the IP address of your Linux system to a domain name, then you need to find out the IP address of the server, and put an "A" record or "CNAME" record in the DNS server to point the domain name to the IP address of the server.

For complete DNS tutorial, read all the pages in...

What do you mean by pointing?  Trying to find your DNS servers, NIS Domain, Web?

Not your server has to point to your domain name, but your domain name has to point to your server. Therefore you have to alter zone information onm the DNS server. Ask your domain registrant for doing so.
