Talking DNS & A-Record with my domain name


Greetings,

Newbie here with a Q? on setting up a DNS config on my Linux 9 box so that I can use sendmail and create a fully-qualified-name.

Background:
I have a website hosted out there (hostway), its name blablabla.com.
Internally (home) I have a RH9 box which I want to configure to use that domainname to complete my sendmail configuration.

Question:
Can anyone enlighten me on the use of:
A-Records
CNAMEs
Where and how are they configured?

I was told that my A record should look like:
hostway.blablabla.xxx

That my canonical names should look like:
www=hostway.blablabla.xxx
mail=hostway.blablabla.xxx
ftp=ftp.blablabla.xxx

Any incling on how to go about this?

Bind is your friend. (I must admit, when I setup bind originally, I did it through xwindows, which was pretty self explanitory) That redhat howto should help a lot though. If not, well, you're definitly at the right place to get additional info.
