You can use the host (http://linux.die.net/man/1/host) command to look up DNS records. The default is to return the A record for a name, but you can use the "-t" option to query for other records. Here, for instance, is the query for your domain using the "any" type:

$ host -t any go-systems.co.za
go-systems.co.za name server ns2.afraid.org.
go-systems.co.za name server ns3.afraid.org.
go-systems.co.za name server ns4.afraid.org.
go-systems.co.za name server ns1.afraid.org.
go-systems.co.za has address
go-systems.co.za mail is handled by 10 mail.go-systems.co.za.
go-systems.co.za has SOA record ns1.afraid.org. glenn.go-systems.co.za. 1208070001 86400 7200 2419200 3600
