Ok etc/named.conf is NOT a symlink and /var/named does NOT have the 
chroot folders.  It has /var/named/data and /var/named/slaves both of 
which are blank.

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
