DNS server in Mandrake 9.1

Hi, I would like to know the way you can add domain names to my DNS server. I have about 14 sites that I want to add to my DNS server. I am at a loss. Can somebody please explain how I can do this? I am failrly new to Linux and would like somebody to explain how I can add these domain names to my running DNS server. Thank YOu very much.

Have you tried putting them in /etc/hosts?

Something like localhost

and so on

Which DNS server do you use? If it's bind try
There are example that will probably make it easy. If you find something unclear, post it here.

Thanks.. I will try that. So many confusing issues with Linux but such a powerful O/S. I am running bind 9.2.2 Mara. I will check out the link you sent and see if I can understand DNS in more detail.
