Default No Reverse DNS

Thank you guys for what you have done with the guides and ispConfig... it is AMAZING!

I just put up a new server (Fedora Core 3) using "The Perfect Setup" (APT is great!) and installed ispConfig 2.2.0, upgraded to 2.2.1. I couldn't put the OS in myself (leased), so there were a few bumps, but we now have a working system. Most everything is going, it even installs FrontPage extensions for us.

Only the DNS setup escapes me. It is hard for me to understand. Thanks to the How-To for Traditional DNS, I got things going more or less...

My problem is NO ANSWER on reverse lookups. It works well forward for both the primary server and an added domain we host... but I can't get the reverse to answer.

my /var/named/chroot/var/named/pri.wvis2.net looks like this:
