Currently I have the IP address and my dig -x results are
as follows:

; <<>> DiG 8.3 <<>> -x
;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch
;; got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 4
;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0
;;, type = ANY, class = IN

                                        1D )            ; minimum

I have purchased nceelabs.org for work and put it on my DNS server that
runs tinydns.  How do I go about getting the reverse lookup to ask my
server what the name is?  Do I need to contact Alltel to have them put
the childns as my DNS?

I'm getting in over my head and if some of my statements are wrong
correct me and I will rephrase my question.
