  Due to some reasons, still I am using RH6.2 where
bind8.2 is running. Now I need to upgrade to bind 9.x 
and got the following error when I start named after

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/named start

Starting named: named: -u not supported on Linux
kernels older than 2.3.99-pre3 or 2.2.18 when using

If I haven't specified '-u named' option in named
script, then it will try to start bind as root user.

Is there any way I can run bind using 'named' user?
