Go to Google and search for "DNS HOWTO", read the docs and the BIND
Administrators Reference Manual ( BIND ARM ). There is plenty of
information out there which doesn't need repeating in mailing lists.

As a quick start, you will probably need to edit /etc/named.conf and
create ( or copy existing ) zone files in /var/named or some similar
directory where they are kept on your system.
