2000 Server - Bad DNS packet

I have installed 2000 server on a machine and am now trying to configure active directory.  After answering all of the questions in the wizard, i.e. the new domain name, NetBios and such i get the box saying that active directory is going to install.  I quickly get an error stating "Bad DNS packet" - I suppose that Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom figured the common man would know what the heck that meant but i dont have a clue.

Im no expert at installing and settign up 2000 server but i did figure it would complete its initial set up properly.  Can anyone tell me what is causing this error?

The bad packet is coming in from some other machine.  Your DNS may be fine.

When do you get that error? Could you be a bit more specific?
