The complete configuration? I hope that's a joke, we can't just give you that, it makes no sense. If you have DNS errors, then you need to learn and understand more about DNS, presumably BIND in your case. There's the BIND howto at and also very many useful manuals about BIND. LDAP certainly has *NOTHING* to do with DNS so you are likley to be mixing up the roles and responsibilities of the services that would combine to provide what you appear to want.

Here is howto for CentOS 5:
CentOS is based on RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 source code, so everything should be exactly the same.
