Ok...try this.

In /etc, check host.conf.  This file should say:
order hosts,bind

The "order hosts,bind" line doesn't need to be in the named.conf file.
host.conf is the resolver configuration file.  Do a man on host.conf as
there are a few options.
Add a host to /etc/hosts and try pinging it and see if it reads the IP
address in from /etc/hosts.  If it does, you are good to go.  After
changing the host.conf, you may have to restart named,
/etc/init.d/named restart

Let me know how it goes...
