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 was making changes to my zone file and I accidently put the wrong ip in...
looks something like this...
@ IN SOA ns1.figmentium.com. root.localhost. (
2003092501 ; serial
28800 ; refresh
7200 ; retry
604800 ; expire

I am using RedHat 7.3 and I'm not even entirely sure I have this zone setup right... I made the error on "colosseum" and put the wrong IP in. I went ahead and restarted the /etc/init.d/named and went on my merry way and then discovered, oops it doesn't ping... I tried correcting the error, and changed the serial, restarted named... hmmm? it still pings to the wrong ip that i goofed on... i changed the serial again, nothing...
i'm assuming the time to live is still alive... how do i kill it? or do i have to wait? lol .. i'm just curious if this is fixable.
please feel free to correct my zone file if i set it up wrong lol... i only have the one machine doing my DNS (and web crap)... and can i use the ip in my other machines such as a winxp box network configuration in the DNS area?
