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 set up a couple of BIND servers with good success. However, I have one that is puzzling me. Here is the setup.
domain: dummy.lab (note, not a traditional .com, .net, .org)
DNS box: 192.168.0.250
All queries launched from the DNS box to the local "dummy.lab" hosts works fine. The Client box can query any local "dummy.lab" hosts fine. However, the Client box can not query non-local hosts, i.e. internet sites. It times out and a TCPDUMP from the DNS box returns a ServFail message as follows:
14:30:04.017508 IP ns1.dummy.lab.domain > 192.168.0.200.1025:
19448 ServFail 0/0/0 (32)
14:30:04.017568 IP ns1.dummy.lab.domain > 192.168.0.200.1025: 19448 ServFail 0/0/0 (32)
14:30:04.017628 IP ns1.dummy.lab.domain > 192.168.0.200.1025: 19448 ServFail 0/0/0 (32)
14:30:04.017689 IP ns1.dummy.lab.domain > 192.168.0.200.1025: 19448 ServFail 0/0/0 (32)
My resolv.conf file has the following:
(Ok, 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 are not the real IPs, but you get the point. They are public Internet resolvers)
