Install DNS Server

Any reason why you’re using CentOS 5.7 given that 6.4 (and maybe later) is available?

if this is a new system you really ought to think about use the 6.x stuff.   5.x is long in the tooth even though still supported it has many older upstream packages of things including BIND.   CentOS does put bug and security fixes in (or RedHat does and CentOS gets them because they build from RHEL source) but you still end up with something very old (BIND 9.3.x) that most folks on this list don’t want to talk about because it is long past EOL for BIND.

I do that and more on an ATOM machine with 2GB RAM. I use Postfix instead of qmail but see no reason qmail would not work.

I installed all the relevant RPMs, configured them and it works.

One thing to remember is that you need two or more DNS servers, I do that by being a stealth master with several slaves on my 3rd party provider.
