Snapshot of DNS Ethereal Capture

I wanted to post a screenshot of a DNS query and its corresponding DNS response captured using Ethereal. In fact in my previous blog i had posted the output of the dig program but i thought posting a screenshot of the decoding of the DNS query and DNS response would really help people who view this blog in finding out the ingredients of the DNS query .

The query i gave in my Firefox browser was this http://www.kernel.org and this query and its corresponding response was captured using Ethereal . Here we go !!!!
