WIN2K DNS Servers are not adding new PC's to F/R Lookup Zones

I have a native 2000 server environment with 2 DC's both are running DNS through A/D. The problem is that when I join a new PC to the domain, it does not get added to the DNS record list in the forward or reverse lookup zones. I am using the DNS server's IP address on the the client as primary and secondary DNS Server's. This is causing a few problems with mapping capabilities. Any good suggestions without re-installing DNS?

If your DNS is configured correctly on the servers,  the problem might lie at the workstations.   Question,  are you using W2k DHCP to assign addresses?   There is an option to have the DHCP server update DNS for the workstation.  
  Try this,  at the W/S,  pull up a prompt and verify all the IP settings by doing a ipconfig /all, just to verify.
  Then do a ipconfig /registerdns.   That should add the records to your DNS server.   Look for entries in the event logs for further clues if all this fails.   Are your zones AD integrated zones?

I found that I needed to change my scope options on the DHCP server to point to my local DNS servers first. It used to work the way I had it setup originally (who knows!). I will give you the points anyway, since you mentioned the DHCP server.
