So do:

1. cd to your home directory (or some other place where you want the
2. fetch ftp://ftp.free... etc (as above)
3. su
4. pkg_add bind9*
5. put in your /etc/rc.conf:
named_flags="-c /etc/namedb/named.conf"
6. reboot and watch for any errors, specifically:

1. Bind9 wants a TTL in each zone file. So if there are none in yours

So what you then do is add in the beginning (after the comments, if
