I need to import DNS records from my old 2000 domain to my new 2008 domain.  Is there any easy way to do this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You are probably going to want to us 'dnscmd' and utilize the export/add functionality.

Yep, there's an easy way.

1. On the 2000 domain: Enable Zone Transfers (to any host, we're only going to leave it on for a few minutes)
2. On the 2008 domain: Create a new Secondary Zone, with the server on the 2000 domain as a master.
3. On the 2008 domain: Once transferred change the zone type to Primary (and tick AD Integrated if applicable)
4. On the 2000 domain: Disable Zone Transfers again

Whether or not this works for you depends on how you expect the zone to work once it's in the new domain / server.
