named problems

I am having some named problems:
The daemon will not start and run on system startup.
There is plenty of info on problems when named
is running, but not when it will not start.
I did get it to start after boot with
#named (su to root without - option)
It started and ran as demonstrated
with ps -aux. But the listing was
just user (me as mortal user) and
named as process (not as a path
to an executable, as is normal
for other processes).
The console messages at start up
gives me configuration file not found
errors. The files are there.
/etc/namedb/named.conf, rndc.key
/etc/namedb is a link to /var/named/etc/namedb where the config
files are. It is set up to be a slave server
for four domains.
How can I go about debugging this
My suspicions are ownership and permissions
are wrong, but how, and how to fix; ??
Thanks in advance
