Bothering you again Waitman,

Now after refreshing my memory (it happened one year ago) I
could remember that I did register the nameservers.  I found the
option in my registar to add to some domain i.e. mydomain.com
the entries ns1.mydomain.com, etc.  I think that the problem I
had was related with the IPs.  The VPS provider gave me just
two, and AFAIK each name server needs its own dedicated IP.  Now
I can remember that I asked to their support team and they
answered me that the nameservers could perfectly share the IP
with the domains.  Could be that the reason I don't get the
thing working?
