I just setup DNS and now I need to manually add an entry. I have a Novell Server that I use for testing. It is named NW1. I cannot ping NW1 because I don't have a DNS entry. I am a DNS newbie so I need help and I would appreciate it if you would spell it out for me. I believe I need to create a forward lookup and a reverse lookup zone for this. Is this right?

Please let me know the steps I need to take to add this computer to DNS.

Computer Name: NW1
Computer IP Address:

I am working on a Windows 2003 R2 Server with DNS installed. Currently, there is only one lookup zone, and it is like acme.local.
