Installing BIND from source is no different from installing any other package from source. The basic issue is unzipping the tar file, then ./configure, make, and make install.

That being said, whatever distro of linux you are running probably can install BIND from a package, which will be much easier on you. In addition to simply compiling the software, you need to put a named.conf file in place, oftentimes set up a new user for BIND to run as, and sometimes set up a chroot for BIND. All in all it is a fair amount of work, and with no disrespect intended, asking a question like "how do I install BIND from source" tells me right there that you aren't ready to do it. I would use your package manager to install BIND, and then just configure it. It wouldn't be strictly impossible in your current state, but there are a great many hurdles you'd have to clear to get a functional version of BIND installed from source.

Also, why on earth did you post in all capital letters? Have we reverted to AOL rules of internet etiquette?

Peace,
JimBass
