I have tested it. It's... okay. It does everything you need, and leaves
the zonefiles in ascii which is good if webmin dies and you ever need to
edit them manually. It's a little on the arcane side if you are not
familiar with DNS terminology... but if you don't know at least the basic
terminology and how everything basically is supposed to work, you really
should learn it first. I haven't been following this thread with a
fine-tooth comb so consider that a general advisory. :)

The very best investment you can make if you are interested in running DNS
is 'DNS & BIND', one of the O'Reilly series. It's about $30, but well
worth every penny. There is not a 'DNS for Dummies' that I'm aware of
(yet), though you can also find several helpful websites on setting up
very simple DNS on a Google search.

Another Stephanie, who admins DNS for a living.
