Re: DNS Problems

look in /etc/named.conf it will have the following entry.

options {
        directory "/var/named";

this implies all your files are in /var/named next in named.conf look
for the following.

zone "." {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";

This implies your list of root servers are in the file named.ca

Now I am not sure why you need a list of root servers at all as they
will be referred to only in case you want to go to the internet which
you say you are not planning to do. I believe just copying the list from
any preconfigured machine will also do.

PS: Try to read the DNS howto just using utilities blindly is never a
recommended method of setting up a server.
