BIND9 -> configure rndc.key

I have installed bind9 on my Debian Lenny, but the bind9 hangs each time during restart.
On the Internet I found a lot of BUGS according to this problem.
Can someone explain me pls howto configure rndc for bind9?
What ownership permissions do I need for /etc/bind/rndc.key?
Do I need /etc/bind/rndc.conf as well?
Which entry exactly should be added for rndc.key in /etc/named.conf?

You can read this, to configure rndc key. It's written for Redhat, but it can be easily adapted to any distro.
