Default DNS Basics

I read Falko's linux set up tutorials on howtoforge and they were really
nicely and completely written and I am pretty impressed. I appreciate
the effort.

Actually I have a question about DNS... I understand that Bind9 is the
utility used for setting up name servers on a linux machine. I do
know, also, that the DNS server has to be so called
registered with the registrar of the TLD, Other aspects
that I am aware of the need to modify apache webserver settings for
host as well as DHCP settings, Bind9 settings, etc... I gather that
DNS takes times to propagate through the DNS servers before your TLD
is actually recognized on the WWW. I also read from your tutorial that
ISPConfig would be a good tool to use to manage DNS configurations.

I am actually rather confused about the many issues revolving about
DNS and I was just wondering if anyone would be able to give me something like a flow explanation for DNS issues from the start when a user possess a
linux server and a dotcom domain name to it becoming "glued" and
officially accessible on the WWW. It would be great it anyone could
explain the big picture to me and then refer me some links to
understand each and every of the smaller bits...

Many of the web resources I have looked up provides bits and pieces of the information here and there and do not link up the entire picture...

Many thanks,

BTW: I am running a FC5 LAMP server and VMWare loaded with Ubuntu 6.06
Dapper Drake Server edition. Once I have grasped Ubuntu and the DNS
issue I am planning to set up a server to run on Ubuntu and attach it
to a dotcom domain.

I really appreciate your time and patience... and I do thank you in
advance for helping me clear some doubts. Many of the web resources
I have looked up provides bits and pieces of the information here and
there and do not link up the entire picture...
