Plesk Sucks - Help with cname please ?

O.K. I am installing WPMU and the only option I have here is PLESK ...

I got in with root and manually modified the vhosts.conf file, however for some reason pico will not work to edit the file on this server ... so I may delete it and redo it with some other instructions I found including a new reboot ...

All that out of the way I am to the CNAME portion and these are my entries

" *.<domain>. CNAME <domain>.
<domain>. NS ns.<domain>.
<domain>. A <ip>
<domain>. MX (10) mail.<domain>.
<ip> / 24 PTR <domain>.
http://ftp.<domain>. CNAME <domain>.
mail.<domain>. A <ip>
ns.<domain>. A <ip>
webmail.<domain>. A <ip>"

The top one being the one I inserted which I think is wrong ..

my problem is it has the following options

Record type .. Select CNAME

Then it has

Enter Domain name : ___________ .<domain>.
Enter a canonical name * : ______________ .

Where the only things I can enter or change is the _______

I changed this and I didn't see where I click "update DNS' but I waited a bit and tried the test blog I created and it isn't working ... Apache has been restarted etc .. Any advice on this ? I am almost positive I did something wrong here not anywhere else
