Just to clarify, the latter line in the example above (starting with @) would 
bomb, since the period at the end would terminate the name of the CNAME ref, 
and so the mycompany.com domain name would not be appended. You'd want either 

@ 	IN CNAME www.mycompany.com. 

// OR // 

@	IN CNAME www 

I prefer to set it the other way around, EG: 

@	IN A 
www	IN CNAME @ 

and then set up apache with ServerAlias for the www.domain.com entry.
