I don't have DNS setup on the server and have spent most of today trying
to get it working.  The server is for a stand alone network and at the
moment, won't be connect to the Internet.  I'm not sure where to start
asking questions, but I can't get the machine to be a name server.  It
does see localhost as a nameserver, but I can't get into our network. 
The resolv.conf file is:

# Our domain
# Our nameserver is cad2

When I run nslookup, I get this error:

cad2:/etc# nslookup
*** Can't find server name for address Server failed
Default Server:  localhost

I can provide more files if needed.
