    But ... why? Why do you want to set up your own DNS server?

    Setting up a DNS from the ground up & in the correct way is a very hard thing to do.

    My advice to you: use a hosted DNS / nameserver like enom. Or just start with a dyndns entry if you haven't got your own domain.

    For learning? OK. There's more than enough documentation available for DNS setup. And if you want the real stuff: http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596001582/

    Webmin is good intermediate step: it will avoid you making syntax or typing mistakes.

    Good luck.
