Not that I know of.... I have a DNS server at home, it's easy, really. You
need to produce five files. If you don't have an internet connection,
then just don't tell it about the root.cache. Then you need
/etc/named.conf (assuming it's v8), localdomain, and localdomain.rev (for
the 127 addresses), and domain, domain.rev (for domain addresses). Make
sure to update the serial number if/when you make changes :)
