hi,
you first need a server os on one pc for examble: Windows 2000 Server, Advanced Server or Windows 2003 Standart and Enterprrise Server.

- install the os on one pc
- when all is ready, then execute dcpromo.exe in the start->run box
- the wizard will guide you through the installation
- dns is to resolve the ip adresses to names and names to ips
- when you want to configure dns yourself, then install it from start -> control panel -> add/remove programs -> add windows components -> networking services -> dns
 here another little help: http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/windows/win2k/win2kdomains.html

good luck
