Question Webmin and file

I'm walking through this tutorial again and I've got to page 3... I've logged into webmin and I'm trying to complete the first step on page 3...

We now want to create our DNS zone so that we are in charge of it and can make use of it. I prefer using a GUI to do this as opposed to editing the zone files.

In a web browser navigate to: (Please use the IP address that YOU assigned to your server.)
Login as "sysadmin" and "12345".
Servers > BIND DNS Server
Under "Existing DNS Zones" click "Create master zone".
When I clicked on BIND DNS Server it claimed a component was missing and offered to install it.. When it completed i was shown a screen that said..

The primary configuration file for BIND /etc/bind/named.conf does not exist, or is not valid. Create it?
-Setup nameserver for internal non-internet use only
-Setup as an internet name server, and download root server information
-Setup as an internet name server, but use Webmin's older root server information
When I click any of the above options I'm given the same error..

Download failed : Failed to open /var/run/bind/run/ /var/run/ for writing : Bad file descriptor
So I'm a little stuck as to how to proceed from here.. ???

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
