Start off by installing the 'caching-nameserver' package -
this configures a working caching-only nameserver (a nameserver
that is not authoritative for any zone, but which queries other
nameservers and caches responses).
If you need more than a caching-only nameserver, read the
documentation in /usr/share/doc/bind-*/arm/Bv9ARM.html .
If you can get access to a graphics terminal, using the 
'system-config-bind' utility provides a GUI, with a facility
to import /etc/hosts files.
Also for any beginner to DNS needing to get into serious
DNS configuration, the book 'DNS and BIND', Abitz & Liu, 2nd. Ed,
by O'Reilly is a must.
Let me know if you have any issues.
