Before I state my issue. I followed this ancient, yet better description than any other walk through I could find walkthrough. http://www.beer.org.uk/bsacdns/
I named my server ubuntu-server.com and when I pinged it. It pinged some 110 network somewhere in the world. Any idea how to even grasp what the heck is going on? I didn't follow the texts and ip addresses letter for letter or number for number when doing it either. I put my own external ip and server name in place of things.
I can't find a really good step by step with a good description for each step. Its kind of a blind "do this" and it might work scenario, leaving me uneducated and truly getting nowhere. I learn better by the gui's like I'm using. I wouldn't have ever found myself in a linux os had it no been for ubuntu 6.06's desktop, crude yet understandable during a time of introduction to linux.
