BIND not loading

Hi all im not so much of a newbie when it comes to linux i have set up 2 DNS servers and they worked. Now im trying to set up one for a frined on a slackware 10.0 box and i cant get it to work right. It seems to load all the zone except for "." the one. Here are some logs.
named status
root@mizled:/etc# rndc status
number of zones: 2

there it only shows 2 zones loaded and there are 3 (that is just witht he default named.conf file)

log messages

Hi Josh,

Could you post your named.conf file? Also, what do you have in /var/named?
