Question Creating A record and PTR record

Hi! guys,

i have been using IRC and see a lot of users are using VHOST
i'm digging out the info that the VHOST can be created consider that you own a server and host a DNS on it

now my friend has a server and a working DNS
he even have bought another domain to make it as VHOST

e.g server hostname:

how do i create A record and PTR record to make it a working vhost?

this server is hosted on FreeBSD 6.2

thanks in advanced
