Question BIND9 Setup Error?

Hello,

I tried following this tutorial;

(http://howtoforge.com/two_in_one_dns_bind9_views)

I was able to get all of the way through it, but after the DNS service fails to start. The syslog indicates a configuration of some sort, but I do not know where. I have revisited all of the config files and they are as the should be.

I used Ubuntu 8.10 for the server, according to the Perfect Setup for Ubuntu 8.10 Server. The DNS service is 'chrooted' in it's implementation. Could that be the problem?

The server has only one NIC with a private IP address. Syslog excerpt:

Dec 17 20:30:02 retro CRON[9432]: Sigfile not found
Dec 17 20:36:10 retro named[9531]: starting BIND 9.5.0-P2 -u bind -t /var/lib/named
Dec 17 20:36:10 retro named[9531]: found 1 CPU, using 1 worker thread
Dec 17 20:36:10 retro named[9531]: loading configuration from '/etc/bind/named.conf'
Dec 17 20:36:10 retro named[9531]: /etc/bind/named.conf:12: when using 'view' statements, all zones must be in views
Dec 17 20:36:10 retro named[9531]: loading configuration: failure
Dec 17 20:36:10 retro named[9531]: exiting (due to fatal error)

Any suggestions?

Thanks
