conditional forwarding with windows 2000 DNS.

Hi there
I have a windows 2000 server acting as DNS server for internal clients.
I wish to enable conditional forwarding on this server, so that all queries for will be forwarded to an external dns server.

all other queries for the internet should still be done by this server.

I know that it is very simple to do this with windows 2003 dns. but is there any way of doing it through windows 2000? or, can I upgrade the DNS component of the windows 2000 server only without upgrading the whole OS? (what a dumb question innit .. :)) )

thanks in advance.
