When you install Debian packages, you already have working examples
for DNS, MTA, sshd, syslogd, kernel etc. If you want or have to
fine-tune the setup, there are many howtos and online documentation
you should read instead of blindly copying something a Debian admin
may have written. You should always understand your configuration
if you leave the default settings after all.
