Want to setup DNS Server and Client on VMware??


I want to explore DNS and Sendmail. So I downloaded exe of Vmware 2.0 on Windows Xp. I installed Fedora Linux on Both.
Now I have bridged networking and do did provided:

Instance 1:

Machine IP: 192.168.1.100

Instance 2:

Machine IP: 192.168.1.101


BIND Software is installed on both the machine.
I want to make 192.168.1.100 as Server and 192.168.1.101 as Client.

Also do let me know how can I setup DNS server?
Will it be possible to learn DNS server and client configuration through VmWare?

dns and vmware have nothing in common whatsoever. it's is not "interesting" that you're running a dns server on vmware. all standard BIND reference docs apply as if it were a physical machine.

All I want is learn how DNS Server and Client could be setup?
I am not running high end server.Just want to learn for interview?
And After DNS is setup want to deploy Sendmail, SMTP,POP and IMAP...So Sendmail and DNS is what I want to learn.

OK, so as above, go read up on BIND. That's how you learn to configure BIND. Buy a book, read the howto etc...
