reverse mapping, was WAKEUPANDTAKECARE

Sorry, but this is just 100% wrong. I've set up Oracle on many boxes and you
don't need any DNS at all to set up an oracle DB. In fact, I tell our DBA's
to use IP addresses in their TNSNAMES.ORA files because I don't want the DB
depending on DNS.


  So... you'd rather type in the address
  than the name

  More power to you.
