Yesterday I posted a question about how to edit and create new DNS records. I got a reply (edit /etc/named.conf and /var/named/"name of your server"), but I'd like to know more. Are there man pages about DNS? I'd also like to know the specific function of /etc/named.conf and /var/named/"whatever". Any help is greatly appreciated.
