Who can give me some config file of named-9 in RH71.
- named.conf
- zone file
- rev. lookup file
I feel the named-9.1.0-10 is very hard to config.

My bind 9.1 config looks something like:


options {
# a caching only nameserver config
        directory "/var/named";
        listen-on {; };
        listen-on {; };
        listen-on {; };

zone "." {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";

zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        file "named.local";

zone "example.com" {
        type master;
        file "db.example.com";
