Oh boy...

To give a very brief answer, everything is configured in flat text files 
using your favorite text editor. If you really want to run BIND, do 
yourself a favor and read the plethora of documentation or pick up the 
highly recommended book "DNS and BIND" published by O'Reilly.

If you're looking for a GUI and Windows is your friend, you may want to 
stick with Microsoft DNS. I would highly recommend BIND over Microsoft DNS. 
You're going to have to spend some time learning it though. It's well worth
