      Try http://www.linux-howto.com/
      You will want to get a domain name too.

      You need to register a domain name and get an ISP who will allow you to manage your own DNS. You’ll also need some real IP addresses.

      Then get the book “DNS and Bind” by Paul Albitz & Cricket Liu published by O’Reilly which will tell you how to set up DNS.

      In this case install bind8 (the previuos releases of bind had some security problem) and set up following the document that cames with your distro.

      If you have further problem I can send you my config files …

      Regardin sendmail with RH be sure to set up your sendmail to refuse connection from outside, otherwise others my use your SMTP for spamming, anyway you can also replace sendmail with qmail.
