bind9 dns troubles

two problems I can see...

db.66 should have reverse records in it...  it is used to look up an
address on the 24.72.66/24 network segment, and map it to an address.
 So it should have an entry something like:

135 IN PTR faithwalk.ca.

also the authoritative server is defined as 'server.faithwalk.ca' but
no address is given to resolve that name (the IN A record line starts
with ; ... commenting it out.)
