Setting Up a DNS Server Answered

I am interested in setting up a DNS server but have never setup any kind of server before. I am currently running Ubuntu 7.04 and windows xp. Is there anyway to do this for free? All shared knowledge is greatly appreciated!

I did this once, you can use *nix and win* with Apache ( http://www.apache.org/ ) also you can get a free sub-domain at http://dyndns.net you only need to set it so that it re-directs to your i.p. address ( whatsmyip.com ) and your homepage directory is /apache/htdocs/index ;)

Get a dyndns domain before installing apache. ;)
