DNS will not forward

I have a 2000 server with AD and DNS installed.  If I point the server towards DNS servers on the Internet, I am able to resolve names and browse.  However, if I point the server to itself and the local DNS, I can no longer browse the Internet.  Since it is a root DNS server, I do not have the option to specify forwarders (the option is greyed out).  Has anyone had this problem?  Shouldn't the server be able to send queries past itself?

You need to delete the root(.) zone.  Then restart the DNS admin.  You will then be allowed to setup forwarders. Deleting the root zone will not cause you any problems.
