that is one of the things I wanted to know how to do
properly... This is Just O'Rielly; Bind or is it one
of those in a nutshells books. Just want to make sure
before I pick up the wrong one. I trust it covers
version 9? if you don't mind and can remember when you
get back to the office can you send the ISBN just in
case I need to order it.

or a quick search on Amazon came up with
DNS and Bind 5th edition
by Cricket Lui and Paul Albitz
O'Reilly Publishing

is this the one your refering too?
