hi Conor,

it looks like this item was revised for RHEL5, but never for RHEL4. can you
please take a look at "16.3.3. Example Zone File" at the link below and see if
it works with your system?


if it is, i'll update the RHEl4 docs as well. thanks!

have verified with internal SME; RHEL5 update now backported to old doc. 

reassigning to mhideo@redhat.com for staging into docs page of website (will let
you know once i have the pdfs / htmls ready)
