Question How to configure a basic DNS server?

Can anyone teach me on how to configure a DNS server. I really need to know. Ive read about tutorials on configuring DNS servers and followed some of the examples but I can't still run the service. Can anyone clarify to me on what will I put in the files host.conf, hosts, and resolv.conf? Please???

You're completely off, what you mention, hosts, hosts.conf, resolv.conf is how you set the box up in order to use DNS.

To setup DNS server, you'll need bind.
