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 -> and reverse ( -> 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 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
