thanks for the quick response Jeremy, I thought it was best to ask.  I
did what you said and now I am getting a permission error. So naturally
I changed the ownership to bind (chmod -R bind:bind /var/run/bind/run)
as well and then chmod 666 /var/run/bind/run. yet, I am still getting a
permission error when i try to start bind9.
any ideas?

regards
Todd
