    When you say 'setup DNS', are you talking about a DNS server, like BIND, or DNS client? I read your message 4 times, and I still have no idea what you are _attemping_ to do.

    If you could state your intentions and problem more clearly, we could probably be more helpful.

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.
