Thanks for all the suggestions. A refresh on the current SNAFU is that all
virtual domains are hosted on NT (probably half using Microswipe Front Cage)
on an IP-per-domain basis. Because of email usage, all "vdomain.com" DNS
requests are directed to the one Linux server IP address. The Linux box

of the Linux system to the appropriate IP address on the NT box or to
