Open the DNS console by going to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > DNS. Expand 'Forward Lookup Zones' and then the appropriate forward lookup zone where the DNS entry will reside. If you want to create a mail.domain.com entry, for example, the domain.com zone should be expanded (or created if it does not exist).

Then, right-click in the zone and choose an option. You can create a new 'A' record (maps name to IP address) or a CNAME record (an alias, which maps a name to another A record), or various other records are available.
