[K12OSN] LTSP and Windows DNS

Windows DNS has given us problems at work, so I'm convinced that BIND is
the way to go.  I've been using it since BIND v8.  The best how-to for
that is the O'Reilly book "DNS and BIND", which, like pretty much all
O'Reilly books, is very easy reading and actually explains how to to DNS
in English.  Ask pretty much *any* relatively recent (last 10 years) DNS
guru how they learned, and they'll probably mention this book.

As for CentOS, setting up BIND on CentOS is basically the same as
setting it up on any other UNIX-like system.  Doesn't really matter if
it's Slackware, FreeBSD, Slowaris, whatever.

Do you GNU!?
