What do I need to do with DNS with Samba Domain Controller ?

I'm trying to build a domain controller by samba.

Could anyone tell me what to do with DNS file setting?

It seems I can't find any documents about DNS and Domain controller tutorial on internet

You don't need to do anything specific. I guess that you may be thinking of the records that current Windows Server products put into DNS, but Samba 3 emulates an NT 4.0 DC and doesn't need these. In fact Samba can act as a WINS server to do name resolution without DNS (the way that older versions of Windows did).
