Setting up my Dell PowerEdge Server

After I have completed the Windows 2000 Server installation, I want to start using Active Directory as soon as possible to set domains and users up. However, I read that before planning to implement an Active Directory, I must have a DNS infrastructure planned and implemented - or I would be sorry. How does one go about doing this? A specific or general guide would be much appreciated.

Actually it is not as bad as it migh seem to be.  Installing DNS is quite simple and configuring it for Active Directory is even easier.  Take a look at this link below.  it walks through how to install DNS, then has links at the bottom of it that you will want to payattention to like how to configure a DNS server for Active Directory.  Don't let DNS get you into a panic.  it is really only more complicated if you intend to host a public DNS.  Private DNS servers are relatively easy to understand and setup.

Hope that helps you.  If you have any questions...just post here and I'll see what I can do.
