It will give you the step by step configuration for DNS in LAN
As already mentioned in the post previous to yours, there is NO single DNS package and any of those could be used. And in case for OP, he is not looking for a DNS that would go online and hence djbdns and mara were options also given.

By the way, even if he were to put it online, djbdns is what I would prefer personally.

i have shared the way that i know for configuring DNS in RHEL5. i have precisely mentioned BIND because the package comes bundled with RHEL5 OS. AND i have not tried to dismiss the use of other packages for configuring DNS.

Depending on how many systems are on the LAN, entries in /etc/hosts could be a simple alternative to DNS.

Yes it could. But on the bigger picture, configuring DNS should be considered. OP will learn DNS as well.
