Yes, you might as well use NT as you have the license, and I'd recommend furthermore SimpleDNS @ http://www.jhsoft.com/.

Mercury, in all honesty its a bit hard for us to truely make that decision as it depends on the time you have available, your resources, and you and your team's areas of expertise. But SimpleDNS is exactly that.
