Its perfectly do-able; what do you want to know?
See the relevant bits here http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red...loyment_Guide/ esp chap 17 for an example.

Thumbs up

There's no difference at all really between the two. Just bundle on up and copy on over your named.conf, any include files, and your db files, and everything will run the same as it was provided you're using the same version of BIND (or whatever DNS server you're using).

The only thing you may need to change is the location of your files in named.conf

Stability-wise, though... Well, it's all UNIX. I mean, it's not like you're running BIND on a wyndoze box

DNS is pretty lightweight stuff, so it doesn't really matter. For instance, you could run BIND on an old Pentium Pro 100 and not break a sweat.

Also, if you're concerned about hardware costs, you can run Solaris on x86 hardware too.

My recommendation for a Linux Distro that is complete, lightweight, easy to learn/administer, and extremely stable is Slackware Linux. I would definately pick Slackware for a server over that of any Redhat or other RPM based distro like CentOS or Fedora.

You can get Slackware here: http://iso.linuxquestions.org/slackw...re-linux-13.0/
