    There are probably more broken DNS servers out there than anything else, now that sendmail disallows relay by default.

    will get you started and

    will help you grow.

    But if the plan is to use webmin the whoile way through you may be screwed - I don't know if that can be done.
    GUI admin tools have no honor. It is a good day to vi.

    both of those links seem to be about unix only.
    I have setup a DNS server on my windows 2k server (static IP) but my registrar won't recognize my new DNS settings. I figure if i just put my DNS settings as the primary and leave the secondary as it is, at least it will still find my site if primary doesn't work.
    I've tried 2 things w/ my registrar:
    using dns1.jmoreau.com (which i setup on my server)
    and using my ip address
    Godaddy.com won't let me change to either. PLS HELP!!!

    You have to register your 2 ips at your registrant. The is a namesver section, not for your domains, but to register ips to name servers.
