IP Address for Host Record to Google Apps

Situation:
Need the IP address for Google Apps to create a Host record.
Have Win 2003 DNS running on a second box that overwrote the Host record being used for Google Apps.  AD domain name is the same as the public name, so I need a host record that point email.domainname.com and start.domainname.com to the Google Apps page partnerpage.google.com/domainname.com

All of the IP addys I have found 72.14.205.147 & .199 & .103 & .104 do not seem to work.

I had this thing working before.  What am I missing.

I have created a host record for start.domainname.com 72.14.205.147 and I get the Google home page.

Thx,
matt

Admittedly it to me some time to figure out that YES I needed a CNAME record and what it should point to.

start = ghs.google.com

Thanks YourReference.
