[CentOS] Installing DNS

Hi there --

I have completed downloading the BIND software onto the system in question, and
I am now ready to configure the DNS server. The type of server I want to create
is a caching server. The reason for this is I want the system to resolve
hostnames exclusively within a private network, 192.168.0.x, and the server will
NOT have access to the Internet. I know I will need to modify the
/etc/named.conf and other files but I am not familiar with what settings are
needed. What tools and/or entries can I use to complete the configuration of the
server? Thanks.

I'm new at this, so I hope I'm telling your right...

First I did a 'man rpm'
Then I searched within man for "requires"
There were a couple and so I read the one pertaining to "query"
Then I did "rpm -q --requires bind"

It gave me a list of needed items.

I hope this is correct and works for you too.
