Again, maybe the folks who put these RPM's and installers together should make 
SURE that these things work. 

I can't count how many times I've been told IM WRONG today alone when the 
installer should have done all of these things FOR ME. I should have been 
working on my configurations minutes after installing. This is not a ME 
problem even if I am not truly well versed in installing a chrooted bind 
server. Let's get it right so that we can fix these problems and see MANY more 
using OS over being too nervous to use it.
