You don't need #OpenDNS , you have your own dns server on #Ubuntu !ubuntu

Install isc bind server

sudo apt-get install bind9

test if the dns query works

$ dig reea.net @127.0.0.1

make it default resolver for your system

sudo pico /etc/resolv.conf

or open it with any editor

sudo kate /etc/resolv.conf
add this entry
nameserver 127.0.0.1

delete all other nameservers or comment them if you want

and that is all (tested on ubuntu karmic and intrepid)

well... bind will resolve the domains through the root server.. and it's not very efficient...
