Win2000 Server and Unix DNS

How would i setup my new win2000 server & active directory you use an existing Unix DNS server?

Windows wants to set itself up a DNS server, but this is unacceptable.

-Windows 2000 DNS server is not mandatory.  
-You can use any DNS server that supports the SRV record and also, hopefully, supports the dynamic update protocol.  
-Are you using bind 8.1.2, which supports the SRV record and the dynamic update protocol or bind 4.9.7, which supports the SRV record only ?
