# pico /etc/named.conf

pico is part of pine, you should have it. It's easy to use.

You can probably install pico via the software install tool in yast, but try nano instead -- it's a pico clone and works the same way. If it's not installed you can use the vi editor, but it's a bit daunting for a newbie (Google for a guide to using it before you try it).
