IMNSHO they really 'altered' BIND setup from 4.x.  After much kicking 
around, I actually reinstalled Centos 5 and started anew.

Do you understand BIND 9.x?  Do you want to implement DNS 'views'?  Do 
you need dDNS?

Are you handling your reverse lookup (arpa.in)?

Quick recommendation:

INSTALL EVERYTHING for BIND.  This includes for a caching server and 

Then install Webmin (www.webmin.com)  and use Webmin to set yourself up.
