Yes, actually, it is. In my opinion, of course.

And that's what running BIND on, say, 192.168.0.1 on eth0, and Samba
at 192.168.0.2 on eth0:0 would accomplish. Samba has built-in DNS.
Why do I need to go to the trouble of running *two* servers for BIND,
bastardizing the BIND on one of them, when I can do everything I want
I am *not* going to be running Samba on one server and everything
else on another. This is Linux, not Windows. It can walk and chew
gum at the same time ;)

I understand bash, and a good many other languages, as well. Thanks
for the pointer. I'll take a look.
