Sorry to see you are still having issues. I thought you were set when we fixed your resolv last night.

Okay - let's start from scratch here....

Are you sure you need a named? Are you actually serving dns for your own IP addresses or are you using it as a caching server. Getting a new named working/installed is not an issue. Config files are usually and issue. If you can explain your network topology and what you are trying to make work I can probably point you in the right direction.

We did get your local resolution issue solved didn't we?
