If you can get access to a graphics terminal, using the
'system-config-bind' utility provides a GUI, with a facility
to import /etc/hosts files.
I suppose, system-config-bind is currently not a good starting point.
The included help file is out of sync with the current program version.
So, for a starter is hard to figure out what has to be done.
I couldn't manage to let the program write a configuration file at all.
It always crashes with a python traceback when I instruct it to save the
configuration (I've to figure out weather I entered something wrong into
one of the entry fields or the program crashes by itself - so no
bugzilla entry yet).
Also for any beginner to DNS needing to get into serious
DNS configuration, the book 'DNS and BIND', Abitz & Liu, 2nd. Ed,
by O'Reilly is a must.
The book should be a better starting point. Pick up one of the examples
and modify it acdcording to the specific need. If desired I can send you
a template for the requirred files.
