Is your internet working? Make sure bind is indeed running,

sudo /etc/init.d/bind9 restart

Edit: Bind should now be installed, the error you got could be due to Bind not running or the us.archive.ubuntu.com being down.

I found this thread in the Ubuntu forums

No problems. Glad you got it sorted!

In order to add new dns records, you will need to edit the named.config file

sudo vi /etc/bind/named.conf

This threads can walk you through that process a lot easier than I could.

Edit: And if you watch, the last episode of Hak5, you will see that Darren demonstrates how to open a text file in a graphic user interface.
