what do you mean a DNS list? Are you the "master of your own domain"
as it were? If you're not a primary DNS server for a domain, then you
can just set yourself up as a slave...or you don't even have to run
named at all...just put a file /etc/resolv.conf with the info that
you have in the DNS portion of the TCP/IP control panel.
If you truly are the master of a domain, then you *REALLY* had better
learn what the heck you're doing before starting. My suggestion is to
buy "The System Administration Handbook", by Nemeth, Snyder, Seebass,
Hein. It will show you real examples of this and so many other
details of running a un*x system.
# nameserver 127.0.0.1

Yeah...edit /etc/rc.conf, and add:
sshd=YES sshd_flags="" (add in any flags you're interested in)
rc will take care of everything.
