I installed bind9 from source with no problems.  Aftter the install 
completes, I cannot find named.conf anywhere.  It says everything 
installs into /usr/local, which if fine, except I cannot find 
named.conf, /var/named .  The named executable shows up in 
/usr/local/sbin though.

So next I tried doing a binary install on Mandrake 10.
urpmi bind.

It installs fine, this time creating /var/named directory.  But still no 

Do I have to create a named.conf file myself?
