    Can't find named.conf

    I am trying to configure DNS on a new linux box but for some reason I can't find the "named.conf" file in /etc/ directory. Why is this so? I assume without creating the zone file in there, my whole effort will be futile. How can I get the named.conf file? Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Are running Fedora?

    The Fedora installation CDs install BIND and a "chroot" BIND. The files re located in a different "chroot" locations.

    The named.conf file will be found in /var/named/chroot/etc. The zone files will be found confusingly in /var/named/chroot/var/named.
