Hi Tony, Why bother? There certainly is not much, if anything at all, to be gained by running two separate installations of Bind on one box. One installation will handle both primary and secondary zones and maintenance will be easier. If you are going to be running both primary and secondary for the same zones on one box just have Bind listen on two IP addresses. If, on the other hand, if you are going to be doing primary for some zones and secondary for other zones you can do both on Bind without any trouble at all. Two separate installations won't do much more than make maintenance more difficult than its to be.
