Thanks Danny for taking to time to respond. I appreciate that very much.
I'll take your advice and check one of my 4 UNIX books. I'm using NT now
(haven't launched yet) after working with BSDI for a few weeks. I
attempted to install and setup BIND but reloaded NT after getting
confused with that ZONEINFO file and the BOG. I figured the graphics
offered with NT would be a good place to go to school on DNS. Dial in
test now work and find things.

I've heard that NT is not the best DNS and that BIND should be used, but
they both seem to be about the same basic stuff. What do you think? Is
this a thingy regarding ISP size or what? As far as I can tell NT is not
to be sniffed at like some folk do.

Thanks again...Howard Brooks, IamNet, Inc.
