Install problem

Hello everyone

I am attempting to install bind (chrooted) on my debian etch server.

I frist installed bind using apt-get install bind9, then realized I wanted
it chrooted, so I uninstalled it and removed the /etc/bind folder
thninking I was being very cleaver.

I then went to install bind as per this article.

Now bind doesn't seem to want to install properly even when I just use
apt-get install bind9.

It seems the install is complaining about the original files in /etc/bind
that don't exist any more, and the install doesn't seem to rebuild/replace

The install created a new /etc/bind folder with rndc.key only in it.

Now I am stuck as I don't have a clue as to how to resolve this.

Here is what I get when I attempt to install bind9

server2:~# apt-get install bind9
