Exclamation Urgent Help in NEED with DNS installation and Configuration!

Hi Everyone.. This is my first time writing in to any Forum!

I am now doing my school individual project. My project scope is to create a DNS server. A primary and a secondary(backup) server. I am using Debian to do it. The problem is that it seems that i cant install and manage to do it.

I've already tried to do research online and i follow uncountable examples.
apt-get install bind9 etc bla bla bla.... but it seem that i've not yet get the hang of it. i could not even install it properly. i know i seem stupid cause its my first time doing it, so pardon me.

i really need help. as my due date is approaching. So if anyone can help me with DETAILED / STEP by STEP on how to install DNS server and the individual configuration of Primary and a Secondary server plus how to test if my DNS is working properly, i would really appreciate the help!


thank you! ,
FirFYPJ

Hello,
first , you need to tell us:
* which version of Debian are you using
* what messages are you getting from apt-get install bind9

Take a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/traditional_dns_howto
To test your zones, you can use dig (see
Code:
man dig
) or www.intodns.com

Where do I get dig from? I installed bind9 thinking it was part of the package although I did not need it but still dig returns a 'bad command or file name' error?!
I am on Ubuntu server.
Thanks.

I think it's in the dnsutils package.
