If you want this to me a public domain, you'll have a few hoops to jump through.
If you're setting up a private domain, then firt I would suggest you do not use a real top level domain such as com, org, net, etc. Doing so would mean the the internet's root servers were the ultimate authority for you domain.

Using a domain like testmedia.pri, it's failrly straightforward:
control panel > add/remove programs > add/ remove windows components > networking services >  Domain name system. (You'll need your Win2000 cd)
You then use the DNS console to add your "Zone File" for testmedia.pri and A records for your machines.
You can set it up to be  either a forwarding (get's all info from your ISP's DNS server) or a "resolving" server(goes out looking for every request itself" and point your clients to it.

If you'd like to use the software that most commercial DNS servers use (BIND) there is a version for windows as well

If you're using Active directory, you probably want the micro$oft stuff.
