I am setting up a test lab at home to learn Server 2003. I installed nWindows Server 2003 Enterprise R2 with all the updates. The box has one NIC. I have a cable modem and wireless router. I am trying to set it up as the Domain Controller and have installed AD et al. I am online with it fine with a static IP, The gateway is the router IP and the DNS is the ISP's. The router Ip is: 192.168.0.1, DHCP is disabled. The server IP is: 192.168.0.2, The DHCP range on the server is: 192.168.0.3- 192.168.0.103(just a test. I am trying to join the domain with my laptop and desktop, but I get DNS errors. They are windows 7 and Xp SP3 Respectively. The error is:

Does anyone have a good tutorial and how to setup AD/DHCP and DNS? I did something wrong obviously. Any help is greatly appreciated.
