/etc/named.conf is the main config file for named, and it will specify
the directory where the zone files are stored.  Each domain that it
provides addresses for is listed in a 'zone' section, and the entries
are stored in the specified zone files.  If you are adding addresses
to an existing domain, just put A records in the zone file.  If you
are adding a new domain, you need a new zone entry in named.conf.  You
should be able to do either through webmin which will also build the
reverse (number-to-name) entries for you.
