I really like to work with the commandline but framebuffer is something i don't wanna miss anymore. The default installation of CentOS-5 comes with framebuffer support but it is not activated. To activate it edit your grub.conf and append to the kernel line with the vga parameter:

# vi /boot/grub.conf

This weekend I setup my DNS and DHCP again (updated to new version and changed the software). I am currently using the DNS and DHCP from ISC. There is nothing special about it, just the usual stuff. This configuration example will allow you to setup a normal DNS for caching and with a forward and reverse lookup zone, incl. access for rndc and updates from DHCP. The DHCP server will be configured with a small range of IP's and with access to update the DNS.
