You need to look in /etc/bind ... within there you'll find a file called example.com

Here's a link that will help you with more detail this:

What you typed in would try to execute that file, rather than edit it.

One command you could use is the following:
sudo nano etc/bind/db.linux.com

nano is a text editor. Let us know if you need more assistance.

See the section regarding the forward lookup zone file... follow that example, but adjust example.com to whatever your domain is. You first need the SOA record set up... a lot of this is conceptually simply to what you may be used to in Windows, just more manual.
