yes sort of. I followed it in another FC4 install and from memory it failed on installing apt
rpm -ivh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/fedora/linux/extras/4/i386/apt-0.5.15cnc7-6.fc4.i386.rpm
But I browsed the url and managed to find the new name of the file.
Then there was another part which failed so now I've been working without it though didn't noticed that ispc required the chroot path to do it's work.
I've done the yum install bind-chroot and it's now running a chroot version but tried to update the dns and still not creating files.
any other minimum requirements to create the zone files or could you tell me where the DNS is created or updated in the php code and I'll find it myself?
