Just making sure you're aware: Fedora Core 6 has been end-of-lifed since
early December, and is no longer receiving any security updates. I'd
advise reinstalling/upgrading to Fedora 8.

I know of people doing the same, yep.

For whatever reason (I'm guessing design, sort of?), dnsmasq refuses to
answer an 'ANY' query for a domain it has an address= entry for. 'A'
works fine, in case you haven't tried that (okay, under 2.41test20,
anyway), but not 'ANY.'
Simon, should an ANY query return the forged A record? I can certainly
see both sides to an argument on the subject.
