Using Non Windows 2000 DNS  Servers

We have recently implemented a Windows 2000 network. When installing Active Directory we set-up integrated DNS on the same server.

This seems to work okay and all dynamic updates seem fine. We have other UNIX based DNS servers within the organisation and we now wish to use these instead of the new Windows 2000 DNS.

How do we change the existing set-up to switch away from our Windows 2000 DNS and to now use the UNIX DNS servers instead?

(one of the links from this page being http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/deploymentscenarios/scenarios/dns04_integ_adnspace_with_nameoverlap.asp which explains usage in conjunction with BIND)
Those scenarios are in fact helpful but here is a brief thing that you should do::
Basically you have to brin the unix DNS up and test that they are working fine and have a version of BIND > 4.2.x that supports dynamic updates and SVR records.
Then you have to rename the the domain folders in W2k DNS and remove the _ off their names. then configure the bing server to be a secondary zone of your w2k primary, then remove the w2k dns and make the bind zones primary.
