Correct MX records field mapping for google apps

How do I install MX records for google apps? 

Google Apps wants me to create new MX records with 'Priority' and 'Points to' fields:

 

Priority Points to
1 ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
5 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
5 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM.
10 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
10 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.

But Turnkeylinux only supplies me with the following fields: 

 

1. Mail Server

2. Preference

3. Subdomain

 

What is the correct field mapping?

Please advise....

Resolved....

e.g.

Mail server = ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
(Take the "points to" value, without the dot)

Preverence = 1 
(take the priority value)

But out of curiosity where are you doing this? In the Hub? I have set up a few domains with Google Apps and have always done it directly with the Domain Name registrar.
