A bit more information would be handy to determine what the root cause 
is.     However, double check your logs for any errors.   If you have a 
*.* entry in your syslog.conf you should see any errors in thier.   

Also if you run named manually does it work?   Is the startup script 
located in either /etc/rc.d or /usr/local/etc/rc.d ?   If you run that 
manually does it work?  

If you do encounter a error, post it back to the list and someone should 
be able to give you direction.
