Hi Praise,

> Will I be safe with Suse's package of bind (9.1.0) in Suse 7.1?
bind 9 is buggy and not safe - neither SuSE's nor Redhat's. It's all ISC...

I recommend reading http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/blurb/unbind.html and using djbdns:

http://cr.yp.to/djbdns.html

djbdns follows *nix philosophy. It splits dns functionality into a set of small tools rather than running a clonky monolithic daemon. The thing runs as non-root and most of it is chrooted. Configuration is stunning easy.

BTW, this mailing list runs akaik with qmail written by Bernstein...
