    DNS zone files

    From the Linux Quick Fix Notebook there is a good section on setting up bind but I have a few things I am stuck on, can anyone show me what I am missing?

    In the internal view of named.conf, one of the zones is for "" with the entry file "" Can anyone show me what the actual zone file would look like?

    Is there a simple method to get my DHCP list to make the reverse look-up zone from my dhcp server ( on a different machine ) or - is it as bad as it seems? Would I be better off assigning ips to each machine via DHCP and then I know what my list will be or ......... I will be putting in a mail server next ( I hope ) and all I read says I need it too.

    I am using Suse 10. where is the named.conf it uses to run from Yast? I see the zone files I made to test in /var/lib/named/ and /var/lib/named/master and there is a named in /var/lib/named/etc/ I think Suse has a different way to start a machine then the "normal" xinet configuration and I am not sure where to look.

    Thanks for ant help

    Well, at least for the DHCP, is it a better thing to assign all of my ips by MAC with my DHCP server so I can use that list to set up the reverse look-up in my DNS server? Or is there a way to get the list and put in the reverse look-up zone file?
