local dns server


I want to install and configure local dns server.
I have searched the internet but could not find the step by step procedure to accomplish the task.
Most of the articles are more confusing than helping out. If someone can help me out.

If you want a very basic solution, I'd suggest looking at dnsmasq as it is *extremely* simple to set up.

Sorry, but I find it hard to believe that you checked Google for this. Putting "how to configure bind on linux" into Google, pulls up this as the VERY FIRST HIT:
http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...onfiguring_DNS

Step-by-step instructions. This isn't the place to come for 'step-by-step' instructions; post a SPECIFIC question, and you can get help. Otherwise, there are THOUSANDS of VERY EASILY FOUND tutorials, if you tried to look. If they're too confusing for you, tell someone else at your office to install it.

TB0ne, it might be easy for you to follow the post as you already have understanding of binds. I did went to that post before posting here but found that difficult (after all everyone has different grasping skills).
I have been through different posts from that particular website and they are quite useful and easy to understand, but I did found it difficult for DNS buildup.
I am in the learning phase and I am posting under "Linux-Newbie", where else do you want me to go? I am sorry that I am not asking questions of your level but senior people have to help the newbie's to move up their level.

Well, you asked for 'step-by-step' directions. That's what you got. Follow the steps, and you'll get results.

If you have a SPECIFIC problem with one step (for example, "The instructions told me to do xxxx, but I get error yyyy...any ideas?"), you can get help. Otherwise, follow the instructions, and try to look up what you don't know...that's called 'learning'. If you can't find answers, that's when you ask for help.

That configuration will only work for you, and isn't really 'step-by-step', but just a list of what you did. You don't explain what you did or why.
