Post service named stop does not work

This is really not happening.
I have already set my DNS and now, when i am trying to restart the named service, its throwing the following error.
Stopping named:
named: already running
i tried it many a times. Is this what we call stability?
I even tried uninstalling all the named and caching-nameserver rpms and then again installed. that did not work.
I tried stoping xinetd service and restarting that again. That also did not work.
When I tried to do it with GUI , i mean click on services and then stopping the named, then it has thrown this error
named failed: the error was: Stopping named:
I want to stop the named service forcibly. How can i do that
I want to manage the named or in that case any service.
Any suggestions will be helpful
Thanks in advance

Locate the process with a "ps auxw | grep named" with it's process ID (PID) in hand, do a "kill -TERM pid#".

To figure out what went boom, check your /var/log/messages (or your syslog setup's equiv.) Also, you can add a " -x" (note the space) to your /etc/init.d/named script's first line... Then you can see in gory detail what's going on when you do a "named stop".

Do you have named bound to a port? I'm not familiar with Redhat's /etc/ files but in Slackware you can bind ports to programs in the /etc/inetd.conf file and if 53 is bound to named, it will listen with named and will not let your restart it. Check your inetd.conf << again not sure about filename in Redhat. I'd start there.
