I'm experiencing DNS issues while trying to host my own DNS & webserver on my home LAN. Basically, I see proper DNS resolve on the DNS server, but not anywhere else on the LAN or public WWW.
I'll admit I've never installed BIND before, but have administered zone files, in any event please make no assumptions.
I have a LAMP server up and running on my home LAN. It's running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
Given that I cannot obtain a static IP from my ISP, and also don't want to pay a domain provider for DNS management, I've decided to try and install BIND9 on the server too, so that I can manage DNS myself.
I've followed the Primary Master section of this tutorial. Note: I did not add reverse DNS, as I did not think this was necessary to resolve an IP from a domain. I will do this later, once everything else is working.
As I said, I am new, and do not really know where to begin.
Here are a few tidbits:

Any pointers are appreciated.
