We currently have a windows server 2003 machine running dns, email, print, and sql servers for our office.  The original installation, however, was rather buggy and rushed so we are looking to set up a temporary machine to run things and avoid downtime while we wipe and reinstall the main server.  So far I have email and sql server running fine on the temporary machine and I'm sure print stuff won't be much of an issue.  What I'm not sure about is the DNS side of things.  The original server controlled the domain pkal.local and the temporary one is on pkal1.local .  If I cut the main server out of the loop, internet access goes down.  What do I have to do to get the temporary one running dns?  Are there any other things to consider before wiping the main server and starting over?
