Active Directory and DNS?

Where can I get active directory to see another dns server when I am installing it?

If DNS is setup on server2 then you can point server1 to server2.
Another strategy would be to let DNS be installed during the promotion process.   Then also make server2 a DC/DNS server.  It is always a good idea to have at least two domain controllers.

You should just be able to leave dns unchecked during dcpromo and be OK. Make sure you have DNS properly configured beforehand.

Is this the first AD server or do you already have a domain and AD/DNS.  
If you already have a domain and AD/DNS infrastructure then on the server you are promoting have it point to a DNS server for your domain as its primary DNS server.
Are you using active directory integrated DNS?  
Thanks

First AD server and first DNS server. AD on server 1 and DNS on Server 2.
