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.

In order to have access to RH's repos you have to have a subscription(pay $). IF you do not wish to pay, use Centos instead. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is free to download/update(unlike RHEL) and is binary compatible(made from same source) with RHEL.
Try running 'yum update bind' first (without the *) to see if it can update the bind package to the latest version. Maybe even remove the existing bind installing and do a clean 'yum install bind*' to have all packages from the same repository.
