DNS help

Any DNS masters out there available to help me out for a few minutes? If so, email me your phone number and a good time to bug you.

Maintaining hosts files on 14 machines sucks. :-)

I want to setup a DNS server internally to do both forward (kyle -> 10.0.0.4) and reverse (10.0.0.4 -> kyle) DNS.

I want the primary on one debian box, then a slave on another ... then I'll set up a virtual server internally on the bigip so 10.2.0.1:53 is always an alive DNS server.

I'm trying to set it up but I'm not sure how to do the reverse stuff. Doesn't seem to work:

Update: Got it working... thanks to corvar
