He may also find that dnsmasq, witch is in the repository
(dnsmasq-2.45-1.fc10.i386) may do the job, and is much simpler to
set up then bind.

One other thing to keep in mind - if you are using DHCP from a
firewall/router, then /etc/resolv.conf is going to get overwritten
if you use the default configuration, so the local name server will
not be used.
