I am relatively new to the DNS setup arena...Can anyone point me in the direction of a good primer for setting up DNS on a Win2K Server.  We have recently changed ISP's and I am in need of redoing the DNS records.

Are website is hosted externally with ValueWeb and they have passed my mx records on to me...SBC T1 has added a reverse lookup to the IP as well.  I have no idea where to go from here.

DNS is basically in a restart mode..the previous guy basically blew it up.

Thanks
