No, configuring bind is a profession. not a 5 step guide. Please read a manual or a guide such as that on tldp.org

^+1 to that. While I like the O'Reilly books 'DNS and Bind' and 'The Bind Cookbook', they may or may not take you forward. Hopefully, you'll learn from the first one, anyway.

But, more to the point, for many users, BIND is simply the wrong choice. If you were to tell more about why you are trying to do this and what you are trying to achieve, maybe there is an easier and better option.

Well quite, why learn bind when, assuming you need dns at all, you can often use dnsmasq fine without really learning a thing?

I feel that we sing from the same hymn sheet, here, although I'd also be prepared to make a case for DJBDNS, under some circumstances. But (vaguely) to the OP's issue, if the OP is still there, there are a couple of situations in which I think that you can make a good case for BIND:
  • If you have a pretty complex set-up, you may well have to take the complexity head-on anyway, and if you are running, eg, split-brained, maybe you might as well just dig in
  • If you are trying to gain paid employment, and the potential employer is unprepared to give you the associated pecuniary advantage unless you can claim to know BIND, which does happen, then there is a clear case for learning BIND in a simpler case first...not that everyone does, of course
