nameserver on Suns

Has anyone out there had any experience with Sun's nameserver?

It would be useful to know things like:

        1. Can I set this up and try it WITHOUT affecting the way things are done presently? There's no reason that the user community
           should suffer.

        2. What can I expect to happen when I start up the deamons?
            (Whch daemons are necessary and sufficient?)

        3. How can I tell if things are working (or not)?

        4. Is it possible (advisable) to put up parts of this, or should
           it be done all at once? I envision something like "rlogin host"
           would query some designated nameserver for "host's" IP address.

        5. What else is necessary to get sendmail to query the nameserver?

Thanks in advance.
