trouble getting a domain name to associate with the server

Hi everyone!

I recently leased a Linux dedicated Fedora 6 server. I have access via control panel only. I read several web sites on setting up a domain name on this OS, but I am yet to find a clear answer. Including: was helpful about the OS, but did not resolve my issue.

The Fedora 6 was installed about one month ago by a tech other than myself (at the hosting company). I want to begin hosting domains on my new server, but so far, have not been able to setup the apache or something. I went to's website too, but I did not find a clear answer for my situation there, either.

I have been using Linux for about four years, but have not done much of the administation myself. I am much more familiar with Windows Server 2003, not LInux, in terms of programming and low level commands and functionalty.

Help is greatly appreciated on this matter. Thank you in advance!

You need a DNS server to associate a domain name to a domain name to an IP address.

I have no idea about using control panel. If you don't have shell access to the machine, I would be very suspicious.
