Where Are You? I'm at 192.168.1.2

For my Network Administration course this week, I had to "learn" DNS and also set it up. Historically I have been afraid of DNS... And with good reason. I really needed to be much more careful in my zone files.

Anyhow, the bulk of the message is that I now have dns working at home! Both forward and reverse lookups work for my wee home network. Its four machines (dulcea, pyrrhus, chevette, nikita) in the domain "icepalace.lan". Changed the domain option in my dhcpd.conf and now everyone on the lan can hit eachother without host files or stupid netbios.

Next step: a real network! Dante and I were kicking around the idea of splitting a domain that we could fuck around with. It'd be fun.
