Hi!
Let's say I wanted to buy the domain ****.se.
I have a running Apache server on RedHat 9.0.
I guess I would have to make my server an DNS-server...?
How do I do this? And how would I register the xxx.se domain?

Thanks!
//Tommy

The easiest way is to use Zoneedit.com instead of setting up your own dns server. Their services are free for basic users (up to five domains).

Okay.. I found lot's of pages where I could just buy the domain..
But what REALLY wanted to learn was how to set up a DNS server.. Can anyone point me in a direction? (e.g. a GOOD guide..)

I am not sure you NEED a dns server, but if your REALLY want to learn how to set one up, here is a guide that can point you in the right direction quickly ht*p://howto.lycos.com/lycos/series/1,,6+36+26095+24860,00.html. If you want a GOOD guide, I would recommend the book published by O'Reilly entitled DNS & BIND.

Bad news. For Swedish domainnames you need TWO correctly configured Nameservers.

As said on their website:

'A domain name under SE is delegated to own name servers when one or several NS-posts in the domain name is placed in the SE-zone. A NS-post is pointing out the name of the name server which shall be responsible for the domain name. It is not recommended to have fewer than two name servers. The servers should be placed on different places on the net and on geographical different places.'
