Setup DNS server on Ubuntu 7.04 Server edition using Bind 9

I followed the tutorial I found here:

to setup dns server on my Ubuntu 7.04 Server edition. But I got ANSWER:0 when I do dig mydomain and can't find mydomain when I do nslookup. Below is the result of both dig and nslookup. I would appreciate if anyone could point me to the problem and how to fix it. Thank you very much.

home@ubuntu:/$ dig mydomain

; <<>> DiG 9.3.4 <<>> mydomain
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:
