Setting up BIND DNS server on Ubuntu server

Hello Friends,

I am trying to set up bind DNS server on Ubuntu server edition and this is a pitched battle where I have already spent hours. Well, the issue is that I have to provide BIND DNS server to 4 other clients and it's killing me. Can someone help me on this. Any help will be appreciated. Also, one more thing before setting up BIND DNS, I tried to secure my server by using SHOREWELL firewall and after installing it, it asked me to change the value from 0 to 1. Now, I have changed the value and I am wondering is that already running. Also,
I am not sure how to use iptables, like, I have two ethernet ports eth0 for the internet and eth1 for local network. I want to stop local traffic from accessing the internet. Any ideas. Looking for some help.

So you want to run a DNS server and make this box a gateway for the other boxes?
I don't know squat about shorewall but I have some iptables scripts I can post if need be. You can also just try (found it off lq forum) looks easy enough.
For DNS you will need to allow outbound and inbound UDP port 53. Are these clients outside your network or in?

I have to set it as gateway, but, other clients have DNS nameservers installed. I will have their FQDN of their networks and then, they can route traffic to each other and I will help them do that. But, I cannot allow these guys to go out onto the internet. They have to stay in the network without going out into the world. So, thats why I have to apply iptables at that interface where these guys come into my network.
Any idea
