/var/named/named.local should only define localhost (NOT your LAN or
domain) and should not have been touched. Names for your LAN and IP's for
reverse lookup for your domain or LAN should be separate files. For
example I put them in /var/named/pz dir like the DNS-HOWTO.
What do you see in /var/log/messages when you do 'ndc restart' and what
response do you get when you 'nslookup' those names or the IP returned
Also make sure that you did not handle the conf files on a DOS/Win box or
if you did, ftp upload them from the Win box as ASCII text (not binary).
