I have caching-nameserver-7.3-3 installed on a Centos 4.2 system. The 
named.conf file which comes with the install has the following options:

options {
        directory "/var/named";
        dump-file "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
        statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
  <comments snipped>

However, when I look in /var/named/data there is nothing there and for 
that matter I can't find the dump-file or statistics-file anywhere on 
the hard drive. I didn't think there was any post install config for 
caching-nameserver-7.3-3. Is there something I am missing regarding the 
basic caching-nameserver install that I don't see a dump-file and/or
