Using Microsoft DNS and Linux Bind 9

I have a Windows 2000 server using DNS.  I also have a Linux Bind 9 server running redhat.  If the IP address can't be resolved on the windows box then I want to have it resolved on Linux.  How do I set this up?
I need the MS server DNS to communicate with the Linux Bind.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Well, you will need to configure your Linux server (BIND) to act as a secondary DNS server.  You will need to configure BIND to load "secondary zones" of the primary zones from your W2K Server.  I don't believe you can have Active Directory Integrated Zones, so unless I am wrong, you will need to run Non-AD Integrated zones on your W2K Server.  Once the primary zones are set, BIND will zone-transfer these as secondaries and be able to support queries.

I have DNS installed on the Windows 2000 server side.  I want some IP addresses to be resolved on the windows side, and others to be resolved on the Linux side.
If the address can't be resolved on the windows side then I want the DNS to check the Linux bind to resolve additional addresses there.

Somone said that they think we need AD integrated zones for the dchp to dns part to work.

Any comments?

Thanks
