Sweet! Thanks for the quick reply. I actually have a 4.2gb drive I can use. Unfortunaly I'm not good yet with the command prompt yet to feel confident enough to configure bind. I'm not sure what the edit tools and such linux has nor to work them yet
I don't think Webmin takes up that much space. I could work well with that. Maybe I can just use that hard drive minium operating system with bind.
Another quick question you might could answer. I have windows DNS servers atm. I will just use this new server as a slave of course. With the windows DNS server I have 2 NIC cards in them so that I have internal net access to the server and then public access. However, after its idle for a bit, I have to disable to internal net card or the server will quit responding to tcp packets and dnsreports errors on those servers. I made sure the dns server setup knows to reply to queries on the public card. Do you know if this is a problem on linux servers?
