Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

1) how do I get wildcard dns working? I thought I had my zone file set up right to do this, but it never works. here's one of my bind zones:
(sorry if the formatting messed it up)
;Begin of file /var/named/kitsapbands.zone
@ IN SOA ns1.kitsapbands.com. postmaster.kitsapbands.com. (
2000032701 ; Serial
300 ; Refresh - 5 Minutes
60 ; Retry - 1 minute
1209600 ; Expire - 2 Weeks
43200) ; Minimum - 12 Hours
IN NS ns1.kitsapbands.com.
IN MX 10 mail.kitsapbands.com.
IN A 188.8.131.52
www IN A 184.108.40.206
mail IN A 220.127.116.11
ns IN A 18.104.22.168
ftp IN CNAME wwww.kitsapbands.com.
Do I just need to add "* IN A 22.214.171.124" somewhere?
2) is it possible to have BIND accept any domain name that points to it (ie: no need to set up a zone file every friggen time) and just have every domain that points to it point to the server it's on (my name server is my main server right now). I'm sure there must be some security risks involved in doing something like this if it is possible.
3) I thought I had my server set up as the master name server (at least for my server), but every time I run dig it tries to get to the first server on the subnet. The main server on the subnet has my zone file for one site, but not the other, so I'm getting trouble like this:
;; Query time: 2 msec
;; SERVER: 126.96.36.199#53(188.8.131.52)
;; WHEN: Sun Oct 5 13:56:19 2003
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 29
Both zone files for the sites are almost the same, but the second one isn't being found (probably because it's not checking my server for it). The site still resolves from the outside (ie: digitsu.net can still be accessed just fine by name), but when I try to send out mail from that domain it says it doesn't exist (I assume because of this problem found with dig).
HELP! (sorry to squish all these questions into one post, but I thought it better then having 3 posts about BIND)
