I need some help setting up Bind 9.3.0 on FreeBSD 5.3.

Here is my setup:

edit /etc/rc.conf

Generate rndc.key, create rndc.conf, place rndc.key in named.conf and rndc.conf
Create Forward zone, reverse zone, loopback
Place my named server in /etc/resolv.conf

Rebooted, then I tried the following:

hazika# dig

; <<>> DiG 9.3.0 <<>>
;; global options:  printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

hazika# /etc/rc.d/named stop
named not running? (check /var/run/named/pid).

hazika# /etc/rc.d/named start

hazika# ps -aux | grep 'named'
root     670  0.0  0.8  1620  972  p1  R+   12:21PM   0:00.02 grep named

hazika# netstat -an | grep '.53
Unmatched '.

hazika# rndc start
rndc: connect failed: connection refused

Some help please, it seems Bind is not running.
