Dear All,

There are very  few articles/tutorials on NSD. This is making me nervous to
adapt it for a long use. If I am stuck, there is no help to refer to. Man
pages are just not sufficient for the people like me who don't have much
experience of the system administration and implementing DNS Authoritative
Server in particular. Other DNS implementations have very good manuals. The
kind of software NSD is, there should have been books written on them.
