W2K replication help

I am working with a company that has many different Domain Controllers spread over many different Sites.

It is therefore an issue when changes are made on one domain controller which you want to affect a user who may be authenticated to another domain controller, or may be in a different site.

If there are numerous DCs in the same site - Does DNS point the clients at the first DC on its list or does it load balance? - I want to know this for password changes that dont seem to instantly work...

I seem to be ablt to force replication between servers using "Active Directory Sites and Services" going to the server-> NTDS settings, right clicking on the connection object and going "replicate now"

How can I check that replication has actually occured between 2 DCs?

I would also appreciate any resources that help explain the tools available to monitor and initiate replication.....

Thanks

This link should help

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/en/server/help/

Click on AD and then pick what you want.

To configure site link replication frequency

Open Active Directory Sites and Services
In the console tree, click the inter-site transport containing the site link to configure.
 Where?

Active Directory Sites and Services
Sites
Inter-Site Transports
inter-site transport for the site link to configure
In the details pane, right-click the site link whose replication frequency you want to set, and then click Properties.
In Replicate every, enter the number of minutes between replications.
 Note

To open Active Directory Sites and Services, click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Sites and Services.
Active Directory Sites and Services can only be used from a computer that has access to a Windows 2000 domain. Active Directory Sites and Services is installed on all Windows 2000 domain controllers. To use Active Directory Sites and Services on a computer that is not a domain controller, such as one running Windows 2000 Professional, install the Windows 2000 Administration Tools.
The Replicate every value will be processed as the nearest multiple of 15 ranging from a minimum of 15 to a maximum of 10,080 minutes(corresponds to one week).
