Well, you read the BIND System Administrators' Guide, you plan your
usage and zones, you write the config file, you crate the zones files,
you start BIND, and you amend your domain record to point an NS entry at

Perhaps if you could be a little more specific about your question, we
could give you a more useful answer.  Where exactly are you running into
trouble?  You DID start by reading the documentation, right?

Oh, and consider buying the O'Reilly BIND/DNS book.
