Question Named doesn't start : "root:4: no current owner name"

I'm using Linux Mandrake and configure it to be a router and dns cache. Iptables is ok! But after the configuration of bind9 was done, I can't start it! The logs are these:

- root:4: no current owner name
- could not configure root hints from 'root': no owner
- loading configuration: no owner
- exiting (due to fatal error)
- Démarrage de named failed

I verified the configuration files and they seem to be correct.

Thanks to help me if you have any idea!
