The caching-nameserver RPM is now obsoleted by the bind-config package,
which 'Provides: caching-nameserver'. 

If you obtained bind-9.3.2-12.FC5 via a 'yum update' command, then 
caching-nameserver would be correctly 'obsoleted' by bind-config.

You do not need to install caching-nameserver if you have bind-config installed.

I'm still seeing this problem. Essentally the update path from a vanilla FC-5 to
the current FC-5 updates in Core, Updates and Extras.

On a vanilla system: 

# rpm -q bind
# rpm -q caching-nameserver
# rpm -qf /etc/named.conf 

Trying to update:
# yum -y update
bind                    x86_64     30:9.3.2-33.fc5  updates           941 k
Transaction Check Error:   file /etc/named.conf from install of
bind-9.3.2-33.fc5 conflicts with file from package caching-nameserver-7.3-5.FC5

The problem is that bind-config is not part of the vanilla install, and
therefore doesn't get a chance to Obsolete caching-nameserver. I'm guessing the
answer is having bind Requires: bind-config ?
