Default Question regarding Fedora Core 6 perfect setup

I was going through the Fedora Core 6 perfect set up and made it to this part:
Code:
chmod 755 /var/named/
chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/
chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/
chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/named/
chmod 775 /var/named/chroot/var/run/
chmod 777 /var/named/chroot/var/run/named/
cd /var/named/chroot/var/named/
ln -s ../../ chroot
chkconfig --levels 235 named on
/etc/init.d/named start
When I do that I get the following output:
Code:
Locating /var/named/chroot//etc/named.conf failed:                                                         [FAILED]
Now, I can see what the problem is (the double slashes), but I am new to linux and just testing out a couple different distributions to see which I like the most. I am not sure how to correct this problem. Could someone point me in the correct direction?

Thank you.

When do you get that output? After what command?

There is not a named.conf. This should have been installed when I did the
Code:
yum install bind-chroot
correct?

Ok, there's something wrong. Did you accidentally delete something? Are you absolutely sure you installed the bind-chroot package?

I ran the command
Code:
yum install bind-chroot
I was working through the Perfect set up and do not remember rm'ing anything. However, assuming I did mess something up, how do I restart the install process for this portion of the Perfect Setup? What am I missing / what was uninstalled?

I figured out my problem
Code:
yum install bind-chroot bind bind-devel caching-nameserver
It starts up after installing all of the above. Thanks for the help falko.
