It *MIGHT* be worthwhile to explore djbdns...  Dan's page about it implies
that it's pretty fast and able to handle lots of requests.  It's REALLY
easy to set up as just a caching DNS server, and I've found Netscape is
MUCH happier when I'm running it instead of BIND on my laptop...

 He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder.
