Setting up a server for my New Company
First let me say sorry this might be a bit long.
Ok here we go:
I have started my own IT company Nerd4Hire (In Australia) and I have decided to go create my environment 90% Linux (I have a XP machine to manage my vmware server and for doing my tax etc). To save some money and learn more about Linux.
I come from a Windows world where I could get servers up and running in no time but come to Linux servers I have limited knowledge.
Call this over kill but I would like to setup a DNS, DHCP, LDAP, webserver (to host a small intranet) and a email server in CentOs (Would the kind people suggest I go something like clarkconnect or ebox)
I have been pulling my hair out trying to setup an internal DNS server using BIND and webmin. I followed these steps fond in the attachment and added my ISP's DNS server as the forwarder. Now when I ping my CentOS server from my Ubuntu machine it pings this address: acmkoikkqo.gs02.gridserver.com (188.8.131.52). Is there something I'm doing wrong?
Also for a 389 Directory server (LDAP) is it a requirement for DNS to before setup before hand?
Again sorry about the long post. Trust me there will be more

First off I do not use any tools to setup Bind. Everything is done by hand.
Since you are using CentOS your Bind should be setup in a chroot env. which should be located in /var/named/chroot/. Everything Bind does will be done from this direcory unless you installd Bind is some other way other then using the setup or Yum.
Lets check some thing first as root
Go to the following dir
See if the following files are there:
If they are there then lets check that Bind is running
'service named status'
If you do not get that the service is running and a PID number then you need to start the service as follows:
'service named start'
You should see that it started. If not what error codes is it

Thanks for the response.
Here is the list of files in /var/named/chroot/etc:
named.conf (I have attached the file)
And here is the output for service named status:

xfers running: 0
xfers deferred: 0
