The fact that you will implement a new server on a new ip is a feature !

It means that you may ( should ?) start up the new name server first,
getting it operational and tested before telling your registrar about
the new nameserver address.  

Otherwise, a sun functions like a hp, get the source, compile and install.

Startupscripts is different, but no worse then you will figure out.

And, stau away from SUN-s named-binary, get a fresh one.
