A Newbie question

Just finished setting up a simple DNS with bind-9.2 and linux-2.4.17 
(Redhat 8.0) Used the linux HOWTO for DNS as a guide. Looks like the 
named.conf and zone files are fine. Using dig starting at "." on the 
server returns the correct IP addresses for the domain. Starting from a 
machine outside the domain I can dig down from the root servers and find 
the primary and secondary servers listed by name and IP in the authority 
section. But when I try dig with the server name it comes back with a 
time out error and states "no servers could be reached". named is 
running and pinging the IP indicates there is a connection.

Something missing in the /etc/inetd.conf or /etc/services files?
