New server build

I am building a replacement server and have installed CentOS 5.  I was
told, and want to verify the validity of what I was told, that when bind
is installed there are certain config files that utilize the servers ip
address and/or hostname.  I'd like to know if this is a true statement.
If it is, what are the config files that are in question. I ask this
because I am building the server now, but will need to reuse the current
ip address and hostname once the changeover is scheduled.  Thanks.
