Here are the steps to install BIND DNS server :

step 1 : Download the BIND software from from www.isc.org if you want to build it from source code.
Step 2 : Make a directory to store and compile dns distribution source say /usr/dns/src

Step 3: Unzip the distribution using gzip command

#gzip -d bind-9.2.5.tar.gz
unpack using tar
#tar xvf bind-9.2.5.tar


Step 4:Now compile the bind using the commands

#./configure
#make
#make install

make install will place BIND configuration file named.conf and related commands in /etc and /usr/local/bin directory .
