My HQ  in London    is  a Windows 2000 server DC.  Domain name : domain.loc    (192.168.100.10 /24)

I am joining  the branch office in Malaysia . Will be going to setup a child domain in Malaysia using
windows 2003 Server.  Child domain name will be   asia.domain.loc

I understand that in this asia.domain.loc  domain controller need to point the DNS to this DC (192.168.100.10 /24) .
But I am unsrue and already tried out, but not working such that. I want to run a DNS in this asia.domain.loc .

In this case, I will need to run the DNS wizard here, but I do not know what option to follow and run to setup a DNS for asia.domain.loc in this child domain .

I had read on some experts-exchange and comments from users, but they only refer me to reaf on technet and support on MS website, thsoe are on theory which I already run about, but I do not get a good practical advise, and steop by step advise on how DNS should be configured in my child domain in asia.domain.loc  .

Please assist me, because I spend a lot of time doing hands-on and reading, but do not have a clear direction.

Thank you

Before creating the child domain, I'd create the asia. sub-domain in the existing domain.loc zone, manually. This causes the complete domain zone, including the new sub-domain, to be automatically replicated to all DC DNS servers in the forest.  
When installing the first domain controller for the new child domain, in the network properties, set the DNS server in the root domain as primary DNS server. When you run the DCPromo, you'll not get the prompt that DNS server needs to be installed, but all domain information will be updated in the root domain DNS server. After the DCPromo, you can install DNS Server on the new machine, and the whole domain.local zone will be automatically loaded through AD, and you can change the network settings of the server to use itself as primary DNS server.
