That and an update (either 1.4 or the newer 2.0, which now calls the 
resolver daemon "Deadwood") and you're in good shape, as best I can see. 
Be aware that duende (the process that usually spawns off maradns' 
recursive and zoneserver authoritative/transfer portions) can be tricky 
if you're not used to such things. If you've ever worked with 
djbdns/dnscache before the concept is much clearer, I feel :-)
