CNAMEs do not take IPs as their value.  They point to a name instead.  For
example:
 
ns1                  A       24.190.202.53
ns2                  A       207.127.75.180
www                CNAME   ns1
irc                   CNAME   ns1
mail                CNAME   ns1
kathweb.net.    CNAME   ns1

Talked to another person at OPN who said the As should be unique IPs and
CNAMEs should be thingies that resolve to the same IP.
 
So, I fixed that.  This is how my zone file for kathweb.net looks now:
 
@      SOA     kathweb.net. root.kathweb.net. (       24.190.202.53
 
                        200101241       ; serial, todays date + todays
serial #
                        8H              ; refresh, seconds
                        2H              ; retry, seconds
                        1W              ; expire, seconds
                        1D )            ; minimum, seconds
                NS      kathweb.net.
                NS      ns2.kathweb.net
                MX      10 kathweb.net.  ; Primary Mail Exchanger
                TXT     "Kathweb"
 
localhost       A       127.0.0.1
 


kathweb.net.    CNAME   24.190.202.53
ns1             CNAME   24.190.202.53
ns2             A       207.127.75.180
www             CNAME   24.190.202.53
irc             CNAME   24.190.202.53
 
mail            CNAME   24.190.202.53

Ok, someone on OPN answered that for me.
 
Next question!
 
@      SOA     kathweb.net. root.kathweb.net. (       24.190.202.53
 
                        2000012101       ; serial, todays date + todays
serial #
                        8H              ; refresh, seconds
                        2H              ; retry, seconds
                        1W              ; expire, seconds
                        1D )            ; minimum, seconds
                NS      kathweb.net.
                NS      ns3.srv.hcvlny.cv.net
                MX      10 kathweb.net.  ; Primary Mail Exchanger
                TXT     "Kathweb"
 
localhost       A       127.0.0.1
 


kathweb.net.    A       24.190.202.53
ns1              A       24.190.202.53
ns2             A       207.127.75.180
www             A       24.190.202.53
irc             A       24.190.202.53
 
mail            A       24.190.202.53
 
Does that look right?
 
One thing I am confused about is NS:
                NS      kathweb.net.
                NS      ns3.srv.hcvlny.cv.net

Should those be MY dns servers (ns1.kathweb.net and ns2.kathweb.net)?
Someone elses?  My ISP's?

Can ns1.kathweb.net be on the same IP as kathweb.net ?
