    Here is my hosts file.

    Code:       localhost.localdomain localhost mail
    Here is my split dns setup

    edit /etc/bind/named.conf.options

    forwarders { 
    xx.xx.xx.xx; xx.xx.xx.xx;   Now are these the nameserver numbers from router going to local internet provider?

    Append to /etc/bind/named.conf.local

    	// We are the master server for
    	zone "" {
    		type master;
    		file "";
    create the zone file: /var/cache/bind/
    ;       Addresses and other host information.
    @       IN      SOA (
                                   10118      ; Serial
                                   43200      ; Refresh
                                   3600       ; Retry
                                   3600000    ; Expire
                                   2592000 )  ; Minimum
    ;       Define the nameservers and the mail servers
                   IN      NS  Is this internal ip address
                   IN      A   same as above then
                   IN      MX      10

    # modify /etc/resolv.conf
    change upstream name servers to your own IP:
    nameserver would this be internal ip again
    # /etc/init.d/bind reload
    # to test it, nslookup should point to

    Here is what my nslookup looks like then

    Thanks Nick
