Take a look at the DNS HOWTO <> for 
a basic introduction.  That should be enough to satisfy your needs.  
However, if you want a more complex setup (ie. views and zones) the 
sample configuration files that are installed by the RPMs are very 
helpful.  They might take a few reads to fully digest, but in the end 
it's all very logical and understandable.
