  I have tried googling to very little avail. I am sure someone here 
will know the answer straight away.

I have a new virtual server straight out of the box. To start i am 
configuring Bind. which is living up to its name!

Iit used to be that I would look at the etc/named.conf file which would 
have all its little database files in /var/named/

Now I cannot find what is where.
named.conf seems to be here but it certainly doesnt look  like it should.


the messages file says it si running of a file called
  which has an include to

but I still don't really know where the zone files are

this is a locate on one of them


is DNS chrooted by default on this system? It is a new redhat system of 
some kind.

Where do the zone files go?

If anyone can help or point to a decent up to date guide on the web I'd 
really appreciate it.
