My DNS servers (master slave) already running on CentOS 5.5 both 64 and
I'm using Bind 9.7.2p2 (now is latest version), I never use rpm package
because is so old, I recomended to you for compile the latest version
for more secure and more capability.

About DNSSEC I don't have experience because I'm not try yet :D, but my
bos tell me if DNSSEC needed for more secure. 

Best regards,
