As I said, in the FAQ, they have;

Again, it's not me complicating this but the FAQ and other things I've been 
reading don't seem to agree in paths and other things. I would have thought 
the RPM would have created the s directory if it's needed. Instead, I figured 
it was slaves since that one was created.

Also, the FAQ states;
which is not just s nor is there a DNS directory but the named directory is 
there of course.

Are you telling me I need to create an s directory or an sl directory under 
named now?

Correct and I've been told to simply copy my files over and not to complicate 
anything, which is what I've been doing :).

I've turned it off since then so it's not in the mix.

Right, that must be it. Figured I'd count on the community so I don't spend a 
week at this. You're right, it's so wrong of me. No one is forcing you to help 
me you know. I have the BIND book, I have the FAQ, I have the Internet, I have 
YOU and still it's not working.

So yeah, I'm counting on the community at this point else I'll have to use a 
freaking MS machine.
