Well I'll give you one good piece of advice before anything else. Please don't top post. (i.e. post your reply at the top of the thread) I personally don't care either way, but a lot of people in the community prefer posting replies at the bottom (and cutting out everything but the relevant portion of the text you need to keep the thread sane.)

Now, to the problem, the 'File not found' is pretty indicative that the zone file you are trying to load isn't where BIND (I assume it's BIND) is looking for it.

If you are using the FC5 BIND package and being a newbie, I'm going to assume all this is what came with FC5, the default location for the files should be /var/named/chroot/etc/bind/. Is this where you placed the zone file? The config file is looking in a directory called _zones_ for the zone file, so it looks like either the config files needs changing or the zone file needs moved to that directory.

Where exactly is this example.co.za file?
