http://howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_etch_p4 Been using that. I get to the instruction /etc/init.d/bind9 start, but it tells me it's failed. I checked the log for errors, and as far as I know, it's empty. My /etc/network/interfaces is as follows: Code: # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface #allow-hotplug eth0 auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.74 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.0.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255 gateway 192.168.1.254 # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed dns-nameservers 192.168.1.254 dns-search pcsscreston.ca As far as I know, that information is correct. I can't verify today (instructor is not present) but I can by tomorrow. As well, whenever I try to do anything regarding mySQL, I get Code: mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed I'm new to Linux, so bear with me If I'm not providing the necessary information, just ask and I'll get it to you.
