i am using powerdns from Debian/Sarge.

Its running, but im not sure about if i have configured everything
correct. As Backend i am using mysql. I cant see the meaning of some of
the Databasefields.

My 'domains' table:
mysql> select * from domains where id like 1\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
             id: 1
           name: mydomain.de
     last_check: NULL
           type: NULL
notified_serial: 2004121401
        account: NULL

what are the fields 'last_check', 'type', 'notified_serial' and 'account' for?

In the 'records' table:
From the Manual i understod that leaving the serial field empty would
cause pdns to generate it. But the generated serial increases every 10
seconds. Then i read pdns would take it from the records.change_date
field with the most resent change, but this seems not to work. Now i
have the serial in the content of the SOA record wich works, but i would
like to let pdns take it from the change_date field.

thanks for any hints
