    On RHEL or CentOS simply type "yum install bind" and follow the tutorial below:

    http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO...twork-dns.html

    Yes, it's for freebsd. Yes, it will work on linux. Bind is Bind.

    If this is your first time administrating a linux server, you should try out http://www.webmin.com/
    It is very powerful and helps on easy tasks like setting up firewall, creating users, etc

    You specify the home directory of the user with the -d flag. Check out the following info on the useradd command

    You need to install ftp server for users to upload the contents to their document root/home directory. You need to install apache for the sites display contents.
