You can find numerous configuration guides for BIND with a Google search on: BIND configuration. I have included links to three good guides below.

LOL, shame man ... I remember the days when Linux was a complete blank for me as well ...

The guys that replied are 100 % correct, those should give you very good insight on how to do what you have asked. Below some shortcut pointers as well

1.) You need to check to make sure you have BIND installed. To do this, type in: rpm -qa | grep -i bind

if you don't have it, install bind by doing a : yum install bind if your server has Internet access. Again, many ways of installing packages, I am giving just an example.

Once it is propperly installed, you will have a file called named.conf under your /etc directory and a service called named

2.) You need to explain what DNS server you looking at installing from here...

Hi,

Have a look at this site, it's a pretty descriptive online book about DNS:
DNS for Rocket Scientists

Kind regards,

Eric
