	well, i've certainly asked more ignorant q's, so hrer goes:
	what is a ``zone''?  i do my own dns and have since 04/2001.

	thought.org is my one domain, altho i've got several virtual 

	a number of people have offered to be my secondary, something that 
	warms me to the core.  this happened once before--i needed a secondary
	and had to scramble.  like to take care of it before something 
	else happened!  --i'm rambling, sorry.  

	again, a Zone is?



	ps: $17.50 *is* reasonable, come to think of it... .
