In FC6 adding this option to /etc/sysconfig/named is not needed. Taken
from /etc/sysconfig/named:

# DISABLE_NAMED_DBUS=[1y]--  If NetworkManager is enabled in any 
# runlevel, then the initscript will by default enable named's D-BUS
# support with the named -D option. This setting disables
# this behavior.

Thanks for the dhcdbd reminder. I had totally forgotten about that one.
