Really?? it shouldn't be very hard..

With named all you need to do is set two global options, forward only and

You'll probably want to add a hint zone for . and a pair of zonefiles for
localhost/, but that's simple too.

Your whole named.conf would look something akin to this:

options {

        forward only;
        forwarders {

zone "." IN {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";

zone "localhost" IN {
        type master;
        file "localhost.zone";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" IN {
        type master;
        file "named.local";
        allow-update { none; };

Poof.. done.. local caching named.
