    Hey I was using the how to from howtoForge for this and i found a possible error, or im just a noob.


    scroll down to the installing the slave and then scroll down to the 5th block. its says
    Add to /etc/bind/named.conf.local:

    zone "linux.lan" {
    type slave;
    file "/etc/bind/zones/slave_linux.lan";
    masters {; };
    allow-notify {; };

    I read the whole walkthrough and there's nothing about creating the /etc/bind/zones/slave_linux.lan.
    I don't know which area of authority to put for this value. Wouldn't i put the master_linux.lan zone here?? and if not im guessing i should put "slave_linux.master_linux.lan"

    I need some clearification please.

    The file is created automatically. It is transferred from the master (this is called a zone transfer).
