named.conf problem

I'we put this line in it:
include "/etc/smbind/smbind.conf";

and when I try to start named service it says
Error in named configuration:
/etc/named.conf:64: open: /etc/smbind/smbind.conf: file not found

but the dir and the file are there.

I tried tu put the dir somewhere else and changed named.conf accordingly but the problem still exist.

I'm running Fedora core 4.

This is because named run in in a jail and, in the jail, there is no such file.

Try to figure out where is the jail. Mine is "/var/lib/named".
Copy your included file to the jail. e.g.
# mkdir /var/lib/named/etc/smbind
# cp /etc/smbind/smbind.conf /var/lib/named/etc/smbind

PS: You do not need to update the path in named.conf.
