Ok, I'm finally to the state of setting up dns and dhcp. From what I read the NOWS way is to set it up in the sbsadmin web interface. That seems to use different backend programs than the sles dns and dhcp programs. For instance I think I read that the NOWS uses dhcpd, whereas in yast it says it uses dhcp-server.

SHOULD I use the NOWS way, or the SLES way for dns and dhcp? Looks like the sles way is more easily configured and managed, but I don't know if it will not be functional for my NOWS users.
