    make sure you have the
    bind
    package installed that contains all the NS stuff

    Code:
    rpm -qa|grep bind
    updatedb && locate named.conf
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    It really sounds like the "bind" package is *not* installed. The /var/named/ dir and /etc/named.conf file are both created by the installation of the bind package.

    What does this command tell you?

    Code:
    rpm -qV bind
    You may need to reinstall it:
    Code:
    rpm -e --justdb --nodeps bind
    yum install bind

    named.conf should be linked in /etc directory.
    Code:
    ls -al /etc/named*
    Do you have chroot bind installed by chance?
    In that case it would be in /var/named/chroot/etc.
