Well we're usually better at answering specific questions.

Just where are you stumped?

Start at the beginning <smile>...

What operating system/distribution/version are you using?

Have you installed bind successfully?  Does it answer requests?

Are you asking someone to log into your system and set it up for you? 
Or teach you, or handhold you?

Yes, DNS is important, but for only a few domains it's NOT rocket
science, so I'm sure you can set it up with just a bit of help, if
that's what you want.
