DNS Problems (mixing with ISP's DNS)

O.k., I'm running ADS integrated DNS on a Windows 2000 server.  It's host IP is 10.0.0.5 and this is the DNS server for my LAN.  Naturally, we point all clients to this address for DNS resolves.  This works just fine for hosts on my local net, but when we try to access www pages on the net, they do not resolve.  I can, however, get to the www pages by typing in the IP address.  Not too sure what to do about this mixed environment.  How do I get the local DNS to foward all requests that it can't resolve to another DNS server (say, the IPS's server)?  I tried to enter a forwarder in the DNS server, but it says that I can't because my DNS server is a "root" server....any ideas on how I can get this stuff to "play" together nicely?? Thanks!!

Delete the ROOT Zone (.) in DNS admin.  Then close DNS admin and re-open it.  It will now allow you to add forwarders.  DNS will work fine .
