Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First problem is you are using fedora. The people that build rpms can tell the rpm to place the config files anywhere. It may be in /etc/bind/named.conf, it might be in /etc/named/named.conf, and it could still be somewhere else. I would run this command to find it:
find /etc -name named.conf -print
You can also use the yum package manager to install BIND. The command
If you did a full installation of FC6 then its definitely installed and the main files are usually located in CD1. Also in FC6 the bind packages are by default installed in chroot-environment so the location will be like
/etc/named.conf -> /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf
/var/named/rndc.key -> /var/named/chroot/etc/rndc.key
/var/named/named.local -> /var/named/chroot/var/named/named.local
... and so on.
Also check whether named service is installed or not by
# ntsysv or,
by running an rpm query like
# rpm -qa | grep bind*
I am having the same problme, except I use CentOS5. I'm new to BIND, and want to learn the tricks. But all the materials I read mention /etc/named.conf. It doesn't exist on my system after I've installed bind, bind-utils, caching-nameserver, system-config-bind, bind-chroot, bind-devel, bind-libbind-devel, bind-libs and bind-sdb with yum.
can't believe nobody encountered the same problem except us. We need people with expertise to give us a solid advice.
