Scott: Thanks! I just began a text file: "Caching DNS Server" and
copied the above into it. Questions: (a) Is caching-nameserver
completely standalone or do I need anything else with it? (Sound like
yum will install everything it needs)  (b) How to configure it? (c)
Easier for me to get that configured properly than dnscache from
djbdns? (d) If I do a minimal CentOS 3.x or  4.x install, would I do
the Routing & Masquerading with IPTables or something else? If I can
get this to work, on a CentOS box, that would be great. Lots of
questions!  Your time and help is much appreciated!   Lanny
