    Fist, I think you need to read up on DOF a little bit.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depth_of_field

    If you had zero DOF, nothing would be in focus at all.

    What you want is maximum depth of field, and this is achieved by stopping down the aperture. The smaller the aperture (larger number), the more depth of field.
