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.

I have a WEB server running on Fedora 10 Linux. It has a static local IP address connected to Belkin router. On Belkin router I've configured port forwarding for 80,53 ports to this static local IP. Router also has a static public IP from my ISP. Also I have a domain registered with godaddy pointing to my DNS server/static public IP on this router and then forwarded by the router to this Linux box.
When I've tried to start dnsmasq it complained that IP is in use so after I shutdown named daemon I was able to start dnsmasq. By the way after this with dnsmasq up and running I was able to start named.
My question is: do I really need to run bind since I've read that dnsmasq could be a replacement for DNS for small networks ? Is there any sample configuration for this ?
I do not need dhcpd ( since I have a static IP ) so from this point all I need is to put my domain name ( or several names if I host several domains ) into /etc/resolv.conf in addition to DNS name server the one godaddy domain hosting is referencing to ? Or just like for BIND I just use search mydomain_name.com clause in /etc/resolv.conf ?
Would this work for me and I can just shutdown BIND in this case ?
Thank you for your answers,
