I dont understand what you mean by 'start DNS'. IF you wish to set up the DNS names for that computer, there is nothing to start. Just modift your /etc/hosts file. If you are trying to use your computer as a DNS server, you will need a program that does that. I use DNSMasq, and that serves fine for the 9 PCs on my local network.

On redhat you goto /etc/rc.d/init.d

./named start
./named stop

Hope this helps!
