The bugginess of BIND 9 didn't come as a surprise to those of us who were
paying attention to the BIND 8 bugs. Were most of them the fault of those
drunken grad students? No! The ``professional software developers'' at the
BIND company added huge chunks of buggy code to BIND. Why should we
believe that the 300000 lines of new code in BIND 9 were written more
carefully than the 130000 lines of new code in BIND 8?

While I can't recommend DJBDNS unless you're running an obscene number of
zones, bind 8 does install into a woody system well (and you can get a
webmin control panel too). It's just more well behaved IMHO. What on
earth is a daemon doing trying to up its own ulimit anyway! How arrogant
of the authors!
Make sure you add to /etc/bind/named.conf:
(220.127.116.11 is the ip address of the chbind, otherwise it will try to listen
on all interfaces, even the ones that are supposed to be hidden)
