DNS forwarding on R2

When installing AD (no sp1), during the installation the wizard asked me the following:

Forwarding DNS queries:
Yes, forward queries to DNS server with this IP address.

And then I would give there the real DNS server address so I could use server's IP address for workstation DNS-address.

Now when installing server 2003 R2 there isn't that question when installing AD. Where I can manually set this setting afterwards?

I have looked the DNS from administrative tools, there was forward zone and I tried to make one, but if I remember correctly it didn't ask any ip's.

Could you help me step by step.

under admin tools - DNS

you will see your DNS server listed. Under the properties of that server, you will see the forwarders TAB. This is on the actual server not Forward look up zone :)
