BIND 9 Permission denied when chmod is 777 o_O

I've been fiddling with this for 2 days now and I still can't get it to work. I have all the directories up to my pid file chmoded to 755 (and I've tried it with all of them 777) and they are all owned by named and I know BIND is running as named but it still says "cannot open file ".../" : Permission denied".

Now here's the really weird part, when I run "named -u named -t /var/named/chroot -g" everything works fine, but when I run "service named start" it fails and it says Permission denied. o_O weird huh? Any ideas?
